Wonderful antique Victorian era c. 1870s hand carved solid oak 8" tall picture frame with ornate floral & foliate decoration! One of a handful of fabulous old carved picture frames that I'm currently getting ready to list, this one possibly of French or even Italian origins and as fine as can be in solid old growth European oak! Great decorative accent in a Country French or English decor. The frame came to us from France missing the back so we just used the card back with easel stand from a newer frame to complete it. A beautiful piece, expertly carved and, as you can see, the important part is as near pristine as could be hoped for.
Very good condition. As noted, the back and easel stand, along with the metal tabs, are replacements but work just fine. One or two small chips possible along the edge and there is one small spot at about the 7 o'clock position of the oval edge that has a very faint split or spot where it was carved through. See pictures for all measurements.
