French Empire Picture Frame

When I was in Portland and went to the antique show this past July, I did find *one* thing to take home with me.

I took home this cute French picture frame with pink Moire silk!  Isn't it cute?  I had never seen one of these antique French empire picture frames with pink silk before.  Usually these picture frames go for a lot of money... this one was a fraction of what they normally cost! There is a little bit of damage but that's okay with me.



I like how the sides and the back of the picture frame are in the pink moire silk as well!  The picture of the little girl was already in the frame.  Most of these picture frames were made around 1880s-1910... right around the time the camera became in fashion.
I put the picture frame above my dressing table in the bathroom next to my other French picture frame.  I love the yellow gold one of the left.  In the days where we take thousands of pictures on our phone cameras, displaying a picture in an ornate picture frame really makes it seem like something special.
A search online found some other fabulous picture frames from the same era and genre.
This one below looks pretty similar to my new pink one, but a little more ornate with the wreath on top.
I love the one below, wouldn't it look cute on a wall? 
Now this one is the most ornate out of all of them, but how pretty!!

This pretty green one below could display a lot of photos!

 I found this other pink one... but it was 10 times the price of the one I got!
I also quite like this pretty green picture frame below...
 What do you think of these picture frames?  I think it's nice displaying a little picture in a pretty little frame these days...
