Antique Victorian WALNUT Civil War Era Picture Frame 18 1/4 x 20 5/8 c1860s ART
Here is a nice antique walnut picture frame , looks to have been made of carved molding and had a inner gilt/gesso slip liner. The inner gilt/gesso is mainly all chipped off, but the frame itself is sturdy still. It measures 24 x 26 1/8 ins. And the inner rabbet size is 18 1/4 x 20 5/8 ins. The molding is 2 3/4 ins. This frame has an unusual element , it has four corners with a round old wood putty(I think) covered hole. Unsure if it was made that way, or more likely someone many, many decades ago repaired it with nails or screws and then puttied over it.
Really do not know for certain. The frame is solid and sturdy. I would date it to the 1860-80s time period. Perfect for Victorian, Edwardian, Civil War art or documents, old embroidery or samplers, and for authentic 1800s decors.
