Lovely & large antique Victorian to Edwardian era Black Forest hand carved 12 5/8” wide picture frame with ornate reticulated or pierced vines & foliage, oval inner view and in wonderful condition! One of a handful of fabulous old carved picture frames that I'm currently getting ready to list or have available now, 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. It currently has a glass for photo display but wouldn’t it be fantastic framing an old needlepoint fragment, perhaps figural with hunt themed game or a dog… A wonderful piece, detailed carving and, as you can see, the important part is in great shape.
Very good condition. The frame came to us from France missing the back so I just cut a wood panel and stained it black to complete it. Possibly a small chip to a leaf tip or two. There is also an added piece of wood at the bottom center, it looks like someone glued it there so that there would be a flat surface at the bottom for surface display. It can be removed for wall display as intended. See pictures for all measurements.
