Iron Cross picture frame
This is a very fine, very heavy 100% original cast iron German picture frame manufactured in the shape of an Iron Cross with a crown in the top lobe and surrounded with a wreath of laurel and oak leaves.

The deep relief nickel plated (not chrome) iron frame is about 7-1/2 inches wide x 9-1/2 inches tall, weighs about 1-1/2 pounds and has a cavity in the back for a typical German 4-1/4 x 6-1/2 inch cabinet card photograph.

The back is fitted with a spring-loaded picture holder / easel and in the bottom lobe of the Iron Cross is the abbreviation Ges. Gesch. (roughly “patent pending” in German).

This is a fine old frame NOT A REPRODUCTION in great condition, perfect for any historic Imperial German military photograph (the oval measures 3-5/8 x 5-1/2 inches). We have not cleaned it or polished it and it is still in wonderful 100% ORIGINAL condition.

The replica picture currently in the frame is there to show how a cabinet card is held.  The frame had no photo when we purchased it in Germany many years ago.
