Offered is an absolutely gorgeous old frame with convex bubble glass. I picked this up in an antique shop in 1998 and have never displayed out it goes.

Old hook is presently on end for vertical use but would also lend itself well for horizontal display.

Measuring 17 1/4" by 12" the frame is an unusual shape. Painted by hand in what I would call a soft muted burnished gold, the finish has feathery light brush strokes of black or lacquer.The four leaf and pods with flowers trim give the appearance a bronze color metal affixed to the wood frame but are actually carved wood.

Viewing area is approximately 14" x 9"

What was once, more than likely ,a wood backing has been replaced long ago with a very heavy pressed board.

Frame has only slightest dab of paint loss in a few spots. Hardly worth mentioning. Don't mind the camera flash in the picture. The picture is awesome!

I am unsure of wood, may be oak.

Glass has a few small bubbles, consistent with old glass and is etched on one end ' Patent Applied For ' I found no scratches.
