The original ivory back plate has a vertical crack near the right edge (see image 4). Good overall condition.
Due to the United States regulations on ivory, the original ivory back plate (see image 4) has been replaced with a back plate made out of an ivory-like synthetic material, similar in appearance (see images 7 and 8). We still have the original ivory back plate.
If you are purchasing this frame, please let us know if you want the frame shipped with the original ivory back plate¹ (as it appears in image 4) or with the replacement plate (as it appears in images 7 and 8).
¹Please note that shipping the frame with the original ivory back internationally will significantly increase shipping time.
Shipping time within the United States will not be effected.
Feel free to contact us for more details.
