Fantastic antique French Black Forest style hand carved 28" picture frame, perfect for a large needlepoint tapestry, mirror or painting with ornate foliage & tendril carvings, armorial style top with crown-topped crest flanked by two lino figures and "HM" or "MH" monogram! Just in from France, just as you see it and just dying to have a fabulous old needlepoint or tapestry mounted in it, don't you think? Beautifully carved solid wood, the top and bottom with pierced or reticulated leaves & tendrils (if you look closely at the bottom you see that there are oak leaves with acorns on the left of center). The top crowned with two majestic lion figures flanking the center crest with what looks like a ducal crown on top. Marvelous!
Very good condition. There are a few chips here and there, the most obvious are the several tips of the crown on top. NO larger breaks, damage or repairs to note though and it's ready for whatever you decide to display with it! See pictures for all measurements.
