SKU: 40-182

This is a most unusual photo frame housing a Carte de Visite from a Garde-Regiment. The man is dressed in his uniform, with an overcoat over his shoulders. He is wearing a pickelhaube with a black parade bush. The Garde Star is clearly visible on his wappen. The photograph was taken at a Berlin studio. The frame is quite intriguing. It is made from a combination of four empty shell casings and six complete (deactivated[!]) bullets. At the frame’s top of is a kriegsflagge crossed with another flag. An easel that permits the frame to stand on its own is attached to the frame’s back. The frame and CdV make a very fine set.
