Wooden mirror/picture frame, made in Camp Petawawa,1940-1942 - solo in inglese

Wooden mirror/picture frame, unstained, made in Camp Petawawa,1940-1942. The frame is constructed entirely of wood, with 3 main parts: the pivoting frame, the frame support, and the base. The frame itself is an elongated octagon (4.5 inches high, 2.6 inches wide). The base is bevelled and measures 7 inches long, 1.6 inches wide, and .9 inches high.

This frame is part of a group of four collected and preserved by the family of internee Girolamo (George) Capponi.

The frames along with other wooden objects in the collection, may have been made by Capponi himself. He had written to his wife asking for wood-working tools.
