Three gilt bronze picture frames from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, each decoratively cast in relief.

The first, a Bradley & Hubbard plated iron Renaissance Revival style wall-hanging frame with a Bacchus face crest, measuring 15" x 10". Outfitted with an arched 8 1/2" x 5 3/4" mirror. Circa late 19th c.

The second, a freestanding bronze Art Nouveau frame decorated with organic floral relief and a Bacchus face crest, measuring 17" x 12". Unknown monogram to the bottom left. Outfitted with a 10" x 7" mirror. Circa 1900.

The third, a freestanding brass Rococo-style double frame, flanked with cherubs and topped with a face relief crest, measuring 13" x 12". Ready to frame two images up to 5 1/4" x 3 3/4". Circa early 20th c.


The Bradley & Hubbard mirror has a hole at the bottom of the frame from which a girandole sometimes protrudes, which is not present here. The mirror inside the same frame shows its age with losses to the silvered glass (as well as a chip to the bottom corner). General wear to the gilt patina across all three frames.
