This is a really sweet frame in all-original condition, including glass and mat.
The frame is a polished gesso (giving an ivory-like effect) with gilt beading and liner. The mats consist of a shaped gray mat with inked red line following the elaborate contours of the cut-out. The inner mat is a deep maroon with velvet finish and a burnished gold bevel to the arched cutout. Circa 1880.
Note: International shipping is not available for this item.
Size: Inner mat opening approximately 3.5" x 5"; overall frame size just under 10" x 12".
Condition: Some age imperfections, and some flaking to gold liner of inner mat.
Note that I try to be conservative about condition descriptions, carefully noting any flaws. Of course, with antique items, there will be some signs of usage, and/or manufacturing defects. But overall, my customers have always been pleasantly surprised upon receiving their items, and of course, returns are no problem if I happen to miss anything.
