Hello,

This is a stained oak and gilt gesso painted picture frame that was made in 1930's based on the nail and wide staple construction on the back. The frame would have a current value of $50 to $60 retail. As a framed mirror, $90 to $120.

This frame is older than that there are no staples in the back i know that it was from the late 1800 or very early 1900
Antique Expert: Rarewares, Antiques and Collectibles Researcher replied 2 years ago

You are right about the staples, I mistook one of the sideways nails for a staple now that I have gone back and reviewed the pictures. The frame can then date to circa 1900, but the value would still be the $50 to $60 retail value.
