Overall in very in good- very good antique shape- given its age- heavy toning, dirt in crevices, some bending, and there's a small bracket and stand missing. This is a beautiful example of French artisan at work- the hand embossing simply makes this a one of a kind item. It looks like it would go nicely on an old piano or even hanging/on a table in Dracula's den- that was a joke.
The patina, the crown on top, serpents- give this frame a sense of charter. Now There are small hallmarks- see pics.
I do not think it is sterling or part sterling I believe silver plated. I will list the size below for your review. The back stand is missing. I believe it can be used as a picture frame or a mirror. It would so add a nice touch to any room- a conversation piece.Please check out pics and read description- as I will not be able to answer any questions regarding this frame. WILL FIT AN INSERT OF APPROX. 13 1/4 INCHES(A LITTLE LESS) X 10 INCHES. A little less then 13 1/4 inches high, 10 inches across. This is an original piece from the time period of 1800s. See high def pics to determine condition style, etc.
Frame Measurements- from bottom to top of crown- approx. Left to right- 14.375 inches. Thickness- a little more then 1/2 inch. PLEASE COVERT MEASUREMENTS TO YOUR SPECS.
Please see pics to determine coat of arms, style, etc. I PROBABLY WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS. The stand in the back missing. I DO NOT BELIEVE THIS IS STERLING OR ANY PART SILVER MORE LIKE SILVER PLATED. Was not cleaned an prefer the new owner to do as they please.
