This is a superb antique Victorian carved Oak picture frame, sadly it does have some damage which is described later in this listing It is very old & dates at a guess to around 1870 It has some pretty amazing.
Sculptural carving to the border There are amazing carved Sunflowers to three of the sides & in between these large flowering heads are long stems with their leaves & various sprouting flowers & little deeply carved'Star-Anise' type shapes Quality Oak, it has a fabulous tight grain & tactile patina, the grain of the wood runs perfectly from the top of the frame to the bottom This frame has a wonderful symmetry but each side is not identical in design, the whole thing has a wonderful balance; whoever did this amazing carving had skill, this was a real labour of love Totally unique, there are a whole coterie of strong Victorian floral motifs It really is a superb feat of woodworking, the sight edge has been chamfered with a cool bevelled'S-ogee' valley T. He Victorians favoured strong foliate patterns in their frames, often meant to signify the growth & stability of the family unit, a frame such as this would be used to display an image of a cherished family member. Will really suit a special picture OR perhaps an image of a loved one Certainly, a frame to grace any wall.Please refer to the photographs. They are an accurate representation of the very good antique condition. The easels used in the photos are not included in the sale. All of our antique frames have some form of age commensurate wear, this is not a reproduction & so there will be slight imperfections e. The odd ding OR light scratch etc. After all, this is the very essence of owning an antique. Each frame has been carefully stripped down of its backing & cleaned by me the back of the frame (verso) is tidied of any loose nails, splinters, dust OR any other abrasions Where necessary, with wooden frames, the border is then treated with a high-quality bees-wax and buffed vigorously, giving the wood a fresh lustre and sheen Many of our frames are completely reconditioned. Unless mentioned specifically in the listing this frame does not have glass OR a backing couriers simply will NOT cover for breakage New glass, however, OR antique, distressed mirror can easily be sourced from a local glazier &.
Will generally cost no more than a few pounds. In most cases I also keep a stock of antique glass should you wish to drop by our location in the North-West & collect a piece, you are very welcome please DM for details TOM. The enjoyment of a painting is linked to how the artwork is presented top art galleries have always known this it is a proven principle adopted in private & public collections all over the world In choosing an original antique frame you are showing sound aesthetic judgement It is amazing just how powerfully a decorous frame can influence our perception & enjoyment of a painting The union of picture & frame jointly should be harmonious, amplifying & heightening the visual impact for you the viewer.
