Antique Gesso Wood Frame with Antique Print of A Peacemaker by Marcus Stone

The wire hanger is also broken on this frame. The print is very old and does have age spots on it and the paper has also darkened with time. The print is still very nice though. This frame and print will take some work to get them back into shape but I do believe that it would be a worthwhile project for the right person. This print and the inside of the frame measure 24 by 20 with the frame being just a tad larger than the frame. The outside of the frame measures 32 3/4 by 28 3/4 inches.
