Título: BARODA. A Large Silver Plated Presentation ...
Editorial: Unknown Maker, India
Año de publicación: 1925
A very handsome presentation portrait photograph frame of arched rectangular shape with ribbon tied decoration to the edges, bearing the cast arms of the Maharaja of Baroda on the lower border and a coronet, scimitar and monogram on the arched top border. The monogram is probably that of Sayaji Rao Gaekwar and the frame appears to date form the 1920s. The reverse is covered in blue velvet and has a strut easel stand. It was probably intend to hold a signed portait of the Gaekwar that would have been presented to other ruling princes and important visitors such as European Royalty, Viceroys, Governors, etc. It could have been given on a visit by the Gaekwar to other palaces. Although the style of the frame is English it is probably of Indian manufacture; there are no markings other than a few scratch engraved letters or figures in an Indian scipt on the bottom edge. The copy of a photograph of two princes is not related. The giving and receiving of signed portraits in personalised frames was a very common feature of royal and aristocratic life in Europe and seems to have been enthusiastically adopted by many Indian Princes, especially after the 1877 Imperial Assemblage in Delhi. Most interior images of drawing rooms or durbar rooms in Indian palaces reveal how extensive the display of these frames was [we include an image of such a photograph in our collection to illustrate theis]. This example is particularly grand and we have left in the tarnished state in which it came to us: it would clean easily but we prefer to leave the decision about that to the purchaser. If the frame is to be exported it will incur extra charges for shipping. Size: 15 x 11 Ins Overall [39 x 28cm]. N° de ref. de la librería 007708
