We are pleased to be offering today this much better than average stand out oak carved frame that has 5 layers of different molding. The cool thing about this frame that dates from the 1890's is that it has a picture of the second Traverse jury the December term in 1896 from the Somerset County Court. There area few pieces of the black gesso carving missing, which is normal on a frame of this age. You would never notice if you colored them in. It could also be fixed with gesso if you choose to go through the expense. The frame itself is outstanding. When you stand back 5 feet and look, the background is against a beige background that is water stained which adds time and character. The picture of the jury, which I am glad I never sat against as I think they would hang me, is outstanding. The frame starts off with a gesso carving on the outside of the oak molded frame and then a gold leaf bronze looking gesso carving (this section has a couple of spots of missing gesso), then a lemon gold liner that really brings out the beauty of the frame and then a small inner gesso carving that also has a small piece of carving missing. The overall size is 30.5 inches wide by 27 inches high. The size of the jury black and white photo, which was taken by Dorrothy from Water Street in Skowhegan, Maine, is approximately 13 inches wide by 11 inches high. It is a great frame to go into your office, hallway, man cave etc. Shipping starts at $50 for a driveway delivery within our normal shipping area.
