Elegant & rare large format French Empire gilded ormolu & wood mat picture frame, ornate bow & ribbon top and gilt accents! One of two spectacular old French Empire frames that we're listing tonight, both very rare with their impressive sizes and in remarkable condition! This one with a vertical format, standing a hair under 12" tall and with the original slightly convex glass! Deep walnut mat with rich gilded inner & outer framing and reticulated classical style accents! Superb!
Very good condition. There is a thin age or drying split in the wood mat on the upper and lower right side. The green back has been replaces but a near match to the original look. See pictures for all measurements.
