Fine Antique French Bronze Jeweled Picture Frame
This frame is absolutely stunning.....
Beautiful gilt bronze with prong set glass jewels.
This frame can be hung on the wall or sit on a table.
The measurements are in the pictures
Weighs nearly a pound (13.03 oz.)
Bronze frame ....with gold gilt
The frame is very strong....it is firm and not bendable.
Holds approx. a 4.5 x 5.5 inch picture.
The outer measurements can be found in the pictures.
Floral & vine decorated top with green and diamond color stones.
The frame itself has a border of diamond color stones all around...
and then alternating pink green & diamond color stones all the way around.
These stones are set with very tiny gold prongs.
There is glass....the glass has rough edges.
The frame also has matting that is under the jewels.
A loop on the back top for hanging.
A easel stand on the back to have it sit on a table.
I purchased this frame direct from France with some other fine French antiques.
CONDITION: Excellent antique condition......
The gold is still nice and bright except on the back side.
The easel stand is strong and good..
THINGS TO POINT OUT:
ever so slight bend to the upper top of the pedimore.....not worth the mention.
On the top of the frame there should be 35 stones...6 are missing.
The stones that go around the frame are all there, none missing.
The matting has darkend with age...however looks very nice in the frame still.
You also could cover it with new fabric if desired. I took pictures of the matting out of the
frame and inside of the frame. pictures of the frame also with it in and out.
There is white cardboard I put in the frame for the photos...I will leave it as
it will be useful in shipping....you may even find it useful for added backing or
to cover it with morie silk fabric. Pictures are taken with and with out the cardboard.
Last picture shows the frame all apart.
