Antique (mid-Victorian) gilt wood and gesso frame, warm lemon gold. The molding is apx 2" wide, including a stencilled cove (which looks like fluting), and a 1/4" scoop on the inside edge. The outside of the molding has brown mustard paint. The outside dimensions are apx 13 1/2" X 11"; the viewable area is apx 9 1/2" X 7"; the rabbet is apx 10 1/8" X 7 5/8". Original wood slat backing (which is split near the top) and square nails. The frame presents an antique (c1880) chromo of a child drowsing in a chair, a cat sipping milk from a small saucer on the child's lap. Printed, top right, "Fac. Simile D'Apres Perrault" (after an original painting by French artist Léon-Jean-Bazille Perrault [1832-1908]). The chromo has a few small blemishes, not all all distracting. Original wavy glass. As the frame is older than the chromo, it may have been cut to size. Offered as found, all original as framed c1880. Please note the frame has a small loss to the gesso on the bottom/right corner, otherwise very good, well-preserved condition. Enlarge photos for detail.
