The first time i saw this frame i was sure it was a reproduction...... Once i saw it up close i saw that amazingly, it wasn't. This is a museum quality, outstanding c1870 Victorian compo frame like no other i've seen before.
Firstly, the condition is fantastic with only minor wear and great patina. The 3 3/4 wide coppery/bronze finished molding has so many things going on, with the beaded outer edge, textured backgrounds, triangulated shell/fan corners, surrounding floral vine (which i believe is morning glory) and a decorated lambs-tongue style site edge. Measures 15 1/8 x 17 1/8 with an 8 1/8 x 10 1/8 rabbet. See my other listings for some great frames and lighting i have recently acquired.Thanks from Phoenix Antique Frames.
