We are pleased to present this Victorian Era Gesso Gilt Frame With it's Velvet Liner Silvered Inner Frame. Not an easy find. If you have a family picture or perhaps an old oil painting from this era that you have been wanting to frame in a really nice period frame… this could be the ticket! The inner frame is silvered and done in a sponge style painting. The velvet mat is gold color and is in pretty good condition. There is one very small area where it has lost some of its pile. Some velvet mat's like this are down to threads, this one is good. The frame itself is gesso with a gilt over it. Done with several flowers including what look like water lilies, tulips and apples or maybe pomegranates. The entire pattern of flowers is connected with wooden branches. It is a really good looking frame, you will not be disappointed.
DIMENSIONS: outer edge measures 12 1/2 ” x 10 1/2” inner area measures (inside the silver area) 8 ¼” x 6 ¼”
CONDITION: Complete Ready to Hang All portions of the frame are in good condition. All it needs is your picture and a new backing. You don’t want to reuse the wood it’s not good for pictures or paintings .
