Stunning is pretty much the only word that works to describe this picture frame. The intricate filigree face is placed on a floral, chased, 1/2" deep frame to give it depth. There is a swag at the top with a bow and a laurel wreath. Two small knobs at the bottom serve as feet.
The condition of this piece is really excellent. There are a few tiny dark spots around the edge of the frame and a bit of age patina. The dark cardboard inset is backed with deep red velvet. The black front of the cardboard shows a tiny bit of wear, as does the red velvet back. There are some very tiny holes around the frame at the very edge of the piece. I don't know their purpose.
The frame measures 8-3/4" across by 6-1/2" high, excluding the swag. With the swag, it measures 7-3/4" high. The small knob feet are approximately 1/2" in diameter. The opening is just a tad over 3-1/2" high by a bit over 5-1/2" wide. There is no glass, nor does it appear there ever was a glass.
