This is a very nice Antique French Picture Frame that I realized few weeks ago for an italian contemporary paintor. Gilded ornates and white laquer are very well balanced and contribute to form a perfect French style shape. These kind of frames were usually made around the end of XIX century. I can tell it because of the white lacquer. In fact the older models of this style were usually gilded in 23 carat gold leaf. There was no sign of white laquer which was instead very much used for picture frames after Art Nouveau.
