ANTIQUE FRENCH PROVINCIAL WOOD OVAL CONVEX BUBBLE GLASS DOME PICTURE PORTRAIT FRAME 24. Up for your consideration is this really cool, really old carved wood oval frame with convex bubble dome glass. This is a very old and heavy piece. It is made from eight different sections of hardwood that are finger jointed together into one extremely solid hardwood frame. The front has what appears to be actual carved wood ornamentation and the unfinished wood back is darkly hued from decades of age.
There are 2 old style flathead wood screws in the sides of the frame and just above that there are 2 steel screw in eyelets. If you look closely you can tell it has been painted over several times, perhaps many different times.
We can see at least three different colored layers. The bubble glass itself is in relatively good condition however there are a couple tiny scratches and the edge is still rough, but that's how it was made.Overall this is an outstanding example of an antique carved wood dome glass picture frame.
