Here we have an exceptionally pair of gilt gesso frames with enhanced photographs. The enhanced photographs are of a young couple with line drawn and coloration enhancement, made to look like a hand drawn portrait. They are Circa 1870.
The gilt gesso frames have red velvet lining bands and are in exceptional condition. The images are untouched in original condition, with original glass and wood back board. The gesso frames have no major damage with only some minor chipping and shrinkage cracks. The red velvet lining bands shows some wear and losses, which is to be expected after 150 years.
The pictures and frames are ready to hand, if desired the original images can be removed for modern portraits.
The frames are from a prominent family in Richfield Springs New York.
The frames measure 14 1/2" x 16 1/2" overall with a sight dimension of 8" x 10".
Here is your chance to obtain an exceptional pair of gilt gesso frames with period enhanced photographs which will look great in your period home or house museum.
