ORIGINAL ANTIQUE NEWCOMB MACKLIN PAINTING FRAME. This is just a great original piece. I truly wish I had a painting that was worthy of this frame. It is a really special frame that should have a painting of superior quality.And be hung in a top tier collection. This is a wonderful early Newcomb Macklin frame in a gold and red finish. It has wonderful elaboratoe gesso corners and sides. The rabbet of the frame measures 21 1/2 x 25 3/4 inches.
I know that is not an ideal size but it could easily be adjusted with a liner. In fact, a proper liner would make this frame ideal for a 24 x 20 painting. Overall, the frame is in excellent condition.
The corners show some splitting of the gesso but mostly just one or 2 cracks. There is virtually no loss. The only spots to mention are upper right in the picture has a 3/8 inch piece missing from the outer corner swirl. The bottom left corner has a dime sized loss as the corner meets the side of the frame. The other corners show no loss.The edges in the middle on the sides show some minor scuffing but nothing too bad. Really overall it is a gorgeous frame and some minor restoration would make it a museum quality frame. I left the Potthast print in there to see how great the frame will look with the proper painting. The outer edge of the frame measures 29 x 33 1/4 inches.
