39 x 28 1/2 Large Antique Gilt Gold Frame Museum Oil Landscape Painting
Handsome antique gilt frame, outside size 39" x 28 1/2". Rabbet size (space available for painting to fit) 31" x 20 5/16". The width was changed about an 1/8" (to make 31") on left side, looking at back, see photo 3. The thin light pine strip between dark pine and gesso shows the approx. 1/8 vertical widening, it varies a bit in width up or down as the adjustment was somewhat crudely done. The main condition issue is loss of a decorative thin strip of gilt gesso where the outer most part of frame meets the next largest part of frame. Photos of the corners show a thin strip of gesso, this is where the loss is, most of the strip is gone. There are elements left if one wanted to recreate it. The corners have some rubs, wear. Some other losses here and there. Overall presents very well considering the noted losses. The original holes for eyelets stripped out, and new holes made just to the inside of originals.
The frame is very dusty, I have not cleaned at all. A very large, heavy, and hard to find high quality frame, museum quality if restored. Please see all photos for condition and description. Will be packed very carefully. The item "39 x 28 1/2 Large Antique Gilt Gold Frame Museum Oil Landscape Painting" is in sale since Saturday, August 4, 2018.
