Large silver and gold antique Italian 18th century frame

A very fine and rare hand carved antique Italian 18th century frame from the Emilia Romagna region.  With original gesso and water gilding, the frame features pierced carving with fleur-de-lys, scrolls and leafwork, centred to the top and bottom with a double fleur-de-lys.  The carving is applied to a flat silver gilt frieze and the combination of silver and gold gilding is particularly noteworthy.  When hung, considered lighting can bring out a subtle shimmer of the silver leaf beneath the pierced carving to great effect.

If required we can source antique mirror plate or supply reproduction plate, please ask for details.
