An absolutely stunning antique hand carved and silvered wood frame, 19th century.
This exquisite hand carved frame was discovered on my recent trip to Peru. It is done with great artistry and masterful craftsmanship with elaborate details in the shape of a window with columns and a pediment. The frame is deep enough with a stand on the bottom making it possible to use it as a display for a smaller sculpture or natural curiosities such as taxidermy, natural corals or crystals. It could also be used as a frame for a mirror, icon or a work of art as there is an inlay in the wood [on the back] for such purpose.
The frame measures approximately 32 x 24 x 4 cm or about 12.8 x 9.6 x 1.6 inches and it is in great antique condition. It was discovered without a colour which was done recently by the silvering technique giving it a majestic old silver colour effect. Please refer to the images!
An outstanding treasure of astonishing beauty for a stylish and unique interior!
