I found this at an estate sale, it measures 2 3/4"high 2" wide, it is marked with two cursive large L's. The frame is 5" high 4 1/2" wide. Any assistance on mark and maker would be very helpful.
Fleur-De-Lis type mark
I don't see the l's
Thanks for the mark, the cursive double L's are hard to photograph.
If these are the marks to which you refer, I believe they are simply the number 22 which you mentioned earlier, when rotated to this angle. Which could simply be the vase shape / design template number. Not sure where the LL mark is. Also, not sure why I referred to this as a vase earlier, clearly my brain is broken.
Some versions of that fleur de lys mark with the arrows say “Firenze” beneath it, alluding to Florence, Italy.
There is a number 22 also impressed on the back.
I have 3 similar, although mine were made in Italy. They are photographs of famous paintings inserted into miniature brass or bronze frames, and glassed. They (mine) are "Rococo miniature photos", https://www.google.com/search?q=rococo+art+miniature+painting+pictu...
"Made in Italy" is written in English indicating these are made for export. My guess at age is circa 1960s-1990s.
I think I found the inspiration for or the reinterpretation of your picture.
What I find unique is the larger leaves on the bottom, which seems contrary to the regular design. Similar to this pendant?
