Antique Oval Picture Frame with Original Bubble Glass
Lovely Antique Ornate Frame
Photographs were a big deal in the early daily and were preserved in artisan made photo frames with hand blown bubble glass. The wooden frames were coopered by skilled wood workers. Meaning that multiple pieces were aligned and connected to produce the final shape. The borders often had ornamental elements highlighting corners and edges.
This beautiful antique frame is a fine example. The Gold Frame has decorative elements on the 4 center points of the oval. There are some areas with small cracks and dings but overall they are minor and add to the proof of its age. On the back side you can see the individual panels that were used to produce the final shape. It has its original handmade Bubble Glass cover that often doesn't survive this long.
The oval is 24 1/2 inches long and 18 3/4 inches at the widest point. It can easily be used in a landscape or portrait position.
The cost for this Antique Frame is $50.00 with $25.00 For Carefully Packed Shipping. This also includes any applicable fees.
