Thank you. This is a very fine example of Chinese workmanship on wood work. The design around the frame are fine mother of pearl design of vines, lotus flowers and leave. Evident on top of the frame. The wood is zitan and very heavy. The frame weights almost one kilogramme. The ring on top for hanging is made of metal. It is so old it is covered with patina so I am not sure what is it made of. The frame was bought in Macau behind the facade of the ruins of St. Paul Cathedral. The street used to filled with antique shops and it is no longer there. I bought the frame to fit a very lovely hand painted portrait of a mandarin. You can see her in one of the pictures. If you are interested in the picture please let me know. Excellent condition except for a couple of the mother of pearl discs are missing. The portrait inside the frame is not included in the auction. Measurement: 22 cm (L) x 17.5 cm (W) x 3.5 cm (H) Weight: 830 grams The battery is there for size comparison only. It has nothing to do with the item. 'Most of my collection is one of a kind.
