This unusual piece from France is an overpainted tin type photo set in oval gilt frame with a pretty floral motif
The paint is applied to the reverse of the glass
The back of this piece is almost as wonderful as the front as its retained the original label announcing its a "Daguerreotype in oil / Patented / by A. LALOUE"
Would be great in a gallery wall of portraits

1010 DECORATIVE is run by Mel - an incorrigible magpie with a passion for collecting and curating.  Based in mid-Wales, Mel's extensive collections have spilled out of the house, into the barns and from there onto her website.

The emphasis of 1010 DECORATIVE is on faded glamour and rustic charm, and each piece is handpicked for its aesthetic or originality. 1010 DECORATIVE focuses on items that sing as solo statement pieces and quirky collectibles that work to great effect en masse. Each item has had a previous life and carries that imprint with it into its new home. Where the provenance is known, details will happily be shared so these timeworn but treasured pieces don’t lose their back story – or their history.
