OLD antique NEWCOMB MACKLIN OIL PAINTING PICTURE FRAME fine art artwork wood NoR: $265
Up for sale here is a circa 1900 to 1920 antique, arts and crafts style Newcomb Macklin Company picture frame. The interior measurements come to 26 1/4 inches by 20 1/4 inches. The total outside measurements of the frame come to 32 1/2 inches by 26 1/2 inches so it has nice 3 inch wide mouldings all the way around. The frame is about 1 3/4 inches in thickness. The frame is constructed in the traditional Newcomb Macklin style with wood pieces holding the frame together on the back. The frame is finished in a light blue and gold stenciled rails with gold metal color on the interior high profile and outer high profile edges. The frame is in a desparate need of a cleaning. The original blue finish has almost a smokey light brown hue. It could be from aging to the finish that is on the frame. The once bright gold finish is now a toned down gold color but it has not been repainted. We have included a picture of an area of the frame that shows the original blue color and what it would have looked like a hundred years ago or so. The back of the frame is almost completely covered with an old brown paper backer aside from the one corner we uncovered to get a picture of the frame's construction. For condition aside from being dirty it has held up pretty well over the years. There are a couple of small sections on one rail were the finish is lifting up in a couple of spots and is missing in some small areas. You can also see some spots of dark red boule coming through from underneath the gold finish on two of the interior part of the frame's corners but it looks more like characteristics of age versus damage. This is a nice old arts and crafts piece and would work with a variety of paintings. Good luck offerding. Shipping to Europe is $79.00.
