This is an excellent mid 19th century American Dutch ripple style frame. Unusual silver finish (which is silver gilding with no tint) which has great patina and presence. The frame is in excellent condition with minor wear and measures 16 1/8 x 16 1/8 with a 12 3/4 x 12 3/4 rabbet. Square nailed, mitered corners and painted sides. Great textile or sampler frame.
