Absolutely stunning pair of antique Arts and Crafts picture frames. Showing the craft of inlaid marquetry at its best these frames are mounted on an oak? The highly detailed pattern on both is made from both light and ebonised wood to create vases; the first containing daffodils in light wood against a dark background and the second, reversing the image, with a dark vase and morning glory flowers and leaves against a light background. There is a sunburst effect around the circle in which a photograph can be displayed and there is a celtic-influenced knot detail at each corner. There are holes in the top so the frames can be wall-mounted, but there is also a hinged strip of wood on the back to allow each to be freestanding. The level of detail of the inlay is amazing and it is all in excellent condition- there are just two tiny pieces missing- one from each frame, but they are not noticeable even close up and reflect the age of the pieces. The Arts and Crafts movement looked to celebrate and replicate the skill of Medieval crafstmen using natural materials and these frames are a fantastic example of this resurgence of traditional work. They are big - measuring H 35cms x W 27cms, so will make a huge statement in whichever setting they find themselves.
