An old sepia photo of Rheims Cathedral, France, with mother of pearl accents. This interesting picture is in the original frame with the framer‘s sticker on back (S.W. Raymond, Poughkeepsie, NY). The image of the cathedral and the river and other background is actually cut-out around its silhouette and framed against the blue to pink background. The mother of pearl is actually behind the image and showing through small slits cut in the photo. The overall affect is unusual and lovely.

My best guess is that this is from the early 1900s based on the sepia image and the type face of the framer’s label on back.

The wooden frame is 7-7/8“ X 9-7/8“. The paint accents on the frame are faded, dirty, worn and spotted. The wood is sturdy. The picture and glass are intact. The blue background has some light streaks which look intentional but I am not positive. The backing paper on the frame is torn but present.

Please note! The U.S. postage quoted for this item is the Priority Mail rate from me in NYS to those exotic places such as California or Hawaii. The closer you are to New York, the less that cost will be. If you would like to purchase this item let me know - I can change the postage to reflect the right rate or I will refund the difference.

This will ship by Priority Mail in the U.S. or First Class Mail International to other countries.

International Money Orders should be in U.S. dollars only.

Always happy to combine shipping. Just let me know which items you want to combine and I will let you know the S&H cost. Please see our Profile and Shipping Policies for other info.
