Lovely antique Victorian to Edwardian era hand carved Black Forest 9 3/4" tall picture frame with ornate reticulated or pierced vines & foliage and wonderful condition! One of a handful of fabulous old carved picture frames that I'm currently getting ready to list, this one definitely of Black Forest origins and in what appears to be linden wood, the common medium for carvings of the area. Nice larger size and great alongside other Black Forest carved pieces. 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 wonderful piece, detailed carving and, as you can see, the important part is in great shape.
Very good condition. As noted, the back, easel stand and tabs are newer restorations. There is a glue repaired split to the carved frame itself on the left side of the bottom (just to the left of the the foliage grouping). Possibly a small chip to a leaf tip or two. See pictures for all measurements.
