The back of this frame is brass, but the front is a cast oval of 18k gold (acid tested). It is not just plated, but has a thin ornate 18k gold plaque mounted atop the backside of the frame. Measurements are noted on the photos. Very good condition for age and type.
The case's outer leather covering in crimson is complete. The case is wood, and there is a slight warp to it but it does close tightly with the clasp, still. Interior of case is excellent old silk. Our lovely big-eyed young woman is still backed by the original vellum sealed backing, and protected beneath the original cover glass, but the very old wafer has shrunk and has 2 hairlines. These do not go all the way, either of them, but they show the fragile nature of the very thin wafer upon which the painting is completed in gouache (a water-based paint).
