SUPERB ANTIQUE VICTORIAN OAK PICTURE FRAME 13.5 Sq REBATE ARTS & CRAFTS NOUVEAU. With a 9 Square REBATE. V ARTS & CRAFTS / NOUVEAU.. A SUPERB ANTIQUE VICTORIAN HAND-CRAFTED CARVED OAK PICTURE FRAME square in shape & with interesting naive/rustic'Tudor Rose' corner carvings & with an excellent Oak grain & patina with interesting & unusual fabric strengtheners verso, a sure sign of great age.. Sight size is 215mm by 215mm.This is a stunning antique Oak picture frame, beautifully carved & with four exceptional corner sections It has a lot of age which can clearly be seen verso with its ancient fabric matting & corner joint mitring I would date it at a guess to around 1850 The design is most interesting especially from a woodworking/carpentry point of view, each corner has been mitred in a 45 degree fashion & has yet then been screwed by either side to make everything super solid & secure, I have only seen this technique before in Georgian frames, hence why it may be much older in its construction It is a lovely square shape & the four border sections have fabulous carved shapes which remind me in some ways of'Tudor Rose' motifs & also of antique architrave, in fact that's what it could be thinking aloud here! It could be the remnants of an ancient door surround or other, yet the four corner sections are certainly from the same wood, each of these four wooden pieces is carved with a lovely raised flower, each individually feels like a'boss' of some type perhaps from a design in a cathedral, this frame to me in design & composition has a wonderful feel of the'Middle Ages' & it has a wonderful somewhat naive folk'rustic-ness' that is delightful It has a wonderful tight Oak golden grain & naturally a wonderfully tactile patina, I always wish I could find out some more about the history of a frame like this, alas it was before framers starting using labels of any sort & as such will remain a mystery A unique beautiful organic'work of art' in itself that will grace any wall, a fabulous conversation-starter Thank you for looking, any questions please ask Please take in ALL of the photos Thank you.
