Fine and exceptional large vintage American Classic, traditional picture frame. This big frame is wood with thin gesso and hand gilt original finish with subtle darkening techniques and red showing underneath the gilt sheets. Two subtle variations of a braided motif circle the main surface. This gold is bright and strong but warm and soft. The finish is a light diffusing matte. Inviting to look at and not brassy. Interior or rabbet measurements are 20 5/16″ by 24 3/8″. Can of course be hung wide or long. Rabbet is set very deep. Width is 3 1/2″ making overall exterior measurements 26 3/8″ by 30 1/2. This beauty has been well kept and is in good vintage condition and presents extremely well. A few small areas almost entirely around the valley shaped sides have a bit of damage or loss to finish and thin gesso. Damage is very shallow and very limited. I successfully touched up and rubbed, blended in those small white gesso areas. Very little touch up and very successful. You can see those small areas but mostly only if you know they are there. Looks magnificent around virtually any fine new or vintage painting, print, mirror, etc. Museum quality and suitable for the finest painting. Works equally well for classic, traditional or modernist paintings. Questions always welcome and thanks for looking.
