B778 - SOLD
This is a charming antique French red velvet picture frame dating from the Napoleon III era C 1860.
It has timeworn to perfection and oozes faded grandeur.
The display area of the frame has a fabulous repoussé toleware border with a central crest and acanthus leaf scrolls and curls. The gilding has mellowed over the years and looks perfect against the timeworn velvet, the quality and colour of which can still be appreciated.
The frame is sturdy, the glass intact. It has a card backrest embossed with the makers name and 'PARIS'. There is a small loop for hanging it on a wall.
The frame measures 16 cm (6.25 inches) high x 11.5 cm (4.5 inches) wide.
While standing it is 10 cm (4 inches) deep.
A gorgeous frame to add an authentic château chic touch to a boudoir and another divine antique French find from La Belle Étoffe.
