Beautiful dark walnut Victorian oval frame, circa 1870. The frame has the original finish and original glass. There is a gilt liner band on the frame, it has not been touched up, as many are.
The photo is rather faded, but shows a very serious looking woman. If you look at the photo, you can see the "props or rests" on either side of her neck. Photo exposure time was several minutes, and use of a steadying device was common.
The frame measures 13 1/4" x 11 1,1/2" and is 1 1/2" deep. The inner dimensions of the oval are 10" x 8". There is only a cardboard backing (old) with some writing.
The frame shows some surface scratches, as seen in the photos. These are not as apparent "in person".
