A rectangular photograph wall frame. Quarter plate in size, the frame is made of compression moulded shellac (secretions of the lac beetle) with wood powder filler. It has an intricate, moulded floral and fruit design but no identification as to the maker and likely dates to the late 1850s (circa). The rear has two brass rings for hanging either portrait or landscape and the ambrotype sits within a floral scribed oval brass mat. The glass plate and brass mat are inserted through the front of the frame.
