Fabulous & rare antique Victorian era Black Forest hand carved 15 3/4" picture frame with ornate reticulated vines & foliate carvings, footed base and original wooden easel stand! It's been a while since we've found and offered on of these larger Black Forest frames, this one the perfect piece to break the dry spell :). It would likely have originally held a thick beveled mirror but is now holding a clear glass panel and will make a superb picture frame, large enough to hold a slightly cut down 8x10" portrait! Attractive lighter color, not the very dark finish as was more common with Black Forest frames. You can't beat the condition either, no breaks that I can see in any of the vine segments and only a small nip or two to leaf tips! Lovely, don't miss it!
Very good-excellent condition. As noted above, there are no breaks or repairs to the reticulated vine segments and just a small chip to a leaf tip or two. The original wood backing and easel stand are intact and only have a glued split at the top where the hanging ring is affixed to the wood panel. See pictures for measurements.
