I have owned this particular frame for over 20 years. It was originally purchased at an estate sale New Hampshire. I date the frame to the early 1900's, though it may be earlier.
The frame is made of cast iron. The painted surface appears to be original. The colors are a mellow red and gold.
Eye hooks (braised to the frame) allow the frame to be hung.
Missing from the frame is its 3 1/4" x 4" wooden back which was held in place by two pins located at the top and bottom of the interior frame. I will ship the frame with a wooden backing, but it will be a replacement.
Otherwise, the frame is in very good and undamaged condition - all original.
