This is a beautiful early 19th century American gilded scoop frame. I don't find too many of these earlier forms with the deeper scoop profile...... And this one is in outstanding condition.
Beautiful original, bright water gilded surface with great patina and minimal wear. Square nailed, mitered corners with ochre painted sides and me asures 21 3/4 x 27 with a 17 1/2 x 22 3/4 rabbet.
Great piece for an early portrait or sampler. Please see my other listings for some great frames i have recently listed. Thanks from Phoenix Antique Frames.
