For sale is this rare Birmingham Guild of Handicraft silver photo frame, with four cabochon stones set to each corner. I believe the stones are pale green/grey translucent Connemara marble, but they be some type of agate. The frame is made of a sheet of silver, with silver A-frame stand. It is fully assayed and part marked for Birmingham 1904.
The design is attributed to Arthur Stansfield Dixon. A rare and authentic piece of arts and craft silver.
