Nice Old Fat Chip Carved Tramp Art Frame with Glass

Regular price $150.00

I rarely come across a tramp frame as satisfyingly wide-edged as this one, which gives it a terrific sculptural presence on the wall. And the unpainted wood is a really wonderful warm brown, which makes it feel simultaneously stately and rather coziness inducing. There are a total of six chip-carved layers (five stacked on top of the base layer) and what I believe is its original glass (which I removed to photograph it) with a sturdily attached wired back for hanging. I think this one would make a great frame for an old painting on board, but  would also make an excellent frame for a mirror, which  it would be super easy to slide in instead of the glass on the back side. 

14 3/4" x 16 1/2" overall. Glass measures 8 1/2" x 11", and the front opening measures 8 1/4" x 10 1/4". Very good condition and structurally very sound, with no loss of layers; there are a few small chips and a slightly larger chip at the right bottom corner, all documented in detailed photos, and which to my eye pretty much disappear when hung on the wall. The glass slides in horizontally to a three-sized frame on the backside.
