Two previously unknown poems by celebrated writer Daphne du Maurier have been discovered hidden inside a photograph frame.<br />
<br />
They are believed to have been penned in the late 1920s, when she was in her early 20s and an unknown in the literary world.<br />
<br />
The poems were written on a carefully folded sheet of A4 paper concealed within a 5ins high blue leather frame which contained a photo of du Maurier in a swimming costume. <br />
<br />
They were uncovered by an eagle-eyed auctioneer who has been tasked with selling an archive of du Maurier's letters and photos, which includes snaps with the Royals.
