This is an excellent c1860 large Victorian rosewood frame. Almost assuredly this was a textile frame and possibly English. Beautifully grained rosewood veneer on an ogee form with a light lemon liner (almost silver). This frame was constructed with 2 depths to allow a textile to be laid back off the glass. Measures 19 3/4 x 23 3/4 with an 18 1/4 x 22 1/4 rabbet and a 15 x 19 opening for a piece of glass.
Square nailed, mitered corners with veneered sides. The frame is in excellent condition with only minor wear and one small area of loss on the front. Beautiful period frame that would be perfect for a sampler or woolwork.Please see my other listings for some great frames i have recently listed. Thanks from Phoenix Antique Frames.
