Emperor Alexander II of Russia 1872 Pair of Photograph Frames PF144
A pair of original, quality 19th century brass photograph frames each with a crown, bearing the monogram of Alexander II of Russia, each dated 1872 and finely engraved and pierced with military trophies and the Imperial Russian Eagle. The reverse has a slide out brass back plate to access the photographs, and a folding easel back stand and the name of the manufacturer/supplier "Ortner and Houle, 3 Saint James Street, London"

Alexander II, Alexander Nikolayevich Romanov, 1818 to 1881 was Emperor of Russia from 1855, he implemented many changes including selling Alaska to the United States in 1869. In 1873 Russia joined Germany and Austria in the League of Three Emperors, giving stability to Europe. The dates on the frames coincide with the first announcement of this treaty in 1872, at a meeting of the three Emperors, so it seems likely they were made to commemorate this. Alexander II was assassinated in 1881.

Please note - the photographs in the frame are copies of other Russian photos and have no other connection to these frames.

This pair of magnificent engraved photo frames, with a good provenance, have been polished and lacquered, although the lacquer may be removed at no extra cost and are complete and in good and working order. Price is for the pair.
