    I love this art deco machine age frame that I found in a local shop. They are very hard to find. I love the photo of Katharine Hepburn as well!

      Great find! This is a circular Dura Company frame designed by Kurt Rettich. I collect these as well, and I have two with the black bakelite bases and one in green. You can see mine here:

      My friend has one with a red bakelite base, which I really want, but he doesn't want to part with it. The black base ones are the most common, but they are all very rare.

      Thank you for the link! I love all of these. I have seen the green before but never the red. I was very grateful to find any at all. I think that I paid about $20.00 for this one if I remember correctly.

      Wow...that's a great buy! The last black one I bought at an antique store was about $100.00, which is a fair price for the frame. As the become more collectible and rare, the prices are going up on Ebay.

      Yes, I missed a few on ebay and could kick myself!

      I also have a square Dura frame with a red bakelite tear drop base, which I bought about a year ago on Ebay. I just ordered a vintage photograph for it, and once it arrives and I frame it, I'm going to post some pictures of that frame on here. I think these look great with vintage photos in them, and you have some nice photos as well!

      I will follow so I do not miss it! Cannot wait to see it!
