C1910 Gilded Carved Wood Florentine Frame, with Picture a/f


Although damaged, this wonderful Florentine carved wood, gessoed and gilded frame still has great charm. The 23 ct gold is still rich and glowing. The patina (complexion) is excellent: minor chips show the white gesso and the wood below. I am not sure if the coloured print is original. I doubt it, in spite of the perfect fit. It is attractive, however. As a mirror and with the missing scroll (5 o'clock) repaired it would be nearing $1000, so it might be a good project for someone, or it can be fashionably "Well Worn Interior".

69 cm diameter.
