Impressive 'double' depth carved and pierced frame with typical Florentine central cartouche/reserve carving detail to the centres of all sides. The hand-bevelled edge plate with a good silvered-grey period colour , probably having been replaced around 100 years ago. The frame probably conceived originally for an oil painting .
Some minor chips and cracks to the decoration and carving commensurate with age ,and the back-boards having been replaced.
