Gorgeous antique Victorian or Napoleon III era 13.5" shadow box style picture frame with stunning gilt gesso on wood inner framing on a maroon velvet mat, glass facade and original easel stand back! Isn't that inner gilded framing just exquisite! Highly ornate with bows & ribbons at the corners and an array of detailed flowers & foliate scrolls. Set against a deep red or burgundy velvet mat, the rich gold really stands out beautifully. The outer frame appears to be in mahogany and the glass appears original though who really knows after all of these years (I see no waviness or tiny air bubbles which would have been an obvious sign). The back original but missing quite a bit of the fabric covering, luckily the easel has all of it's cover and includes the gilt embossed label that appears to read "A. King, 7 nor land Terrace, Notting Hill". One of two beautiful old shadow box frames that we're adding this week, the other with a profile portrait miniature in it now but could be removed for your own portrait if desired. Be sure to browse some while you're with us. Thanks!
Very good condition. The inner gilded frame is pristine, kept safe under the glass and the velvet mat shows little to no signs of age. The back however :), does show its age with the missing teal colored silk or satin covering missing over most of the upper portion. A screw or two missing from the back but that just makes it easier to get in for placement of your photo or portrait. See pictures for all measurements.
