20th Century Louis XIV Frame

Antique frames for sale louis XIV Antique frames for sale louis XIV Antique frames for sale louis XIV

An early to mid 20th Century Louis XIV corner and centre frame which requires restoration. I believe it was made in Sweden, although that is just based on anecdotal information. Lots of cracks in the composition ornament, missing sections, and the sanded panel is lifting away. The running pattern between and the corner/centres is a very stylised low relief design. Despite the obvious areas that need attention, the original gilded finish is good and stable with burnished corners and centres.

A very good quality French made 19th Century composition Barbizon or Salon gallery frame. This is the classic and real Barbizon style of frame. The style is a 19th Century revival of earlier Louis XIII frame patterns. The compo ornament is finely cast with deeply sculptured and prominent leaf and flower ornament on a stippled ground. The inner and outer ornament is also deep and crisp. Original water gilded finish, much of which would have originally been highly burnished (such as the sides, middle hollow, and high points of the ornament) Various missing pieces of ornament, cracks in the compo, and all corners are sadly damaged. If the frame is to be repaired the corners will need to be fixed by taking a mould from another frame, or by modelling one corner free-hand to take a mould from, nevertheless the frame would make a fabulous mirror as it is, or once restored would be an excellent original period frame for a 19th Century painting.

Rebate size: 30 7/8" x 38 3/4" 785mm x 984mm
