Fine Victorian Era Frame, Great Patina, For 12" X 16" Artwork, 3"-wide Molding For Sale
Fine Victorian era wood and "Compo" frame, original Vintage, for 12" x 16" or smaller painting
An excellent Antique Victorian American picture frame. Has a 3"-wide molding. Note: a 12" x 16" painting will fit in this opening exactly, meaning all of the painting will be visible in the opening, except for a sliver resting on the very edge of the lip. If a 12" x 16" painting is placed in this frame, it will have to be shimmed from the back around all sides. But the advantage of this fit is that all of the painting will be displayed. Presently houses a nice antique mirror. I can ship with or without the mirror. With the mirror, the unpacked weight of the frame is 7 lbs. If you decide you don't want the mirror, we'll adjust the invoice at the time of your purchase, and it will cut shipping costs by about one-third. We refund all unused postage, too. Condition: Some minor losses and cracks commensurate with age, but overall in very good condition. I've photographed all the corners for you, and the most serious ding on the frame (see photos).
About us: We’ve been selling on for over ten years, and have never received a negative. We ship immediately and pack with great care. We use the expertise of many years to recognize, research, and bring you the best values in accurately-described fine art.

Condition: While we provide a written description of condition, our photos constitute an equally important part of that description, so please examine all of the photographs above carefully. In addition, all older and antique items and art can reasonably be expected to have signs of handling, oxidization (toning) of canvas, paper, and wooden components. Please note that all of our art is photographed in outdoor shade with ambient sunlight, producing the best approximation of the art’s true colors. When you unpack the art indoors under traditional lightbulb (incandescent)lighting, its tonality can appear darker.
Signature: original signature and date lower right
Questions about any item: please when you ask a question, please refer to the item by name or number. Because when you ask a question through ’s message system, the system does not always refer to a specific item!
Second Chance Offers New procedures prevent fraudulent “Second Chance” Offers. Now on higher priced items your buyer’s ID can only be seen by the seller of the item. But if you want to make absolutely sure that any second chance offer I may send you is legitimate, you can look under your own “My ” where my offer would appear under your “My Messages” and also under “All Buying” which is in a column on the left side of that area. I do occasionally make second chance offers. If you didn’t offer on my item to begin with, it is impossible for you to get a legitimate second chance offer.
Important: I never eMail buyers with a private offer to sell during an sale. The latest scam involves buyers receiving “offers” from the seller while the offerding is going on. Ignore all such offers.
Shipping: Shipping on this item is automatically calculated unless otherwise stated. Shipping amount includes packing, and USPS Priority shipping and insurance. Packages in excess of 104 inches length and girth
combined are shipped using UPS, usually UPS “3-day select.” I make every effort to ship within one business day of getting payment, as the response I’ve received attests. Our experience is that United Kingdom buyers’ packages are considerably delayed by UK Customs.
offer with Confidence: If you are not satisfied with this item, let me know within 48 hours of USPS
delivery to you (as determined by tracking information), and return it to me within 7 days of delivery, and I will gladly refund your offer amount, including all initial shipping charges (not your return postage). The 48 hour notification mentioned here is for your benefit, and is a “must.” Returned items must be unused, unaltered, undamaged, and not re-offered for sale, in identical condition/completeness as purchased. Loss of any labels, parts, literature, etc. or alterations including any varnishing, removal of varnish, cleaning or polishing voids return and refund privilege. Our items are typically found at
estate sales, sales, flea markets, thrift shops, and yard sales. Most sale houses - and even thrift shops, for that matter - will not disclose the identity of their consignors, and for that reason we are usually unable to establish a chain of ownership, or provenance.
And while we sometimes may be able to identify estate decedents and previous owners, we cannot speak for the expertise of the previous owner. As such, unless otherwise stated, the items we sell are not “vetted,” and are unauthenticated. Unless we specify that an item is “painted by,” or “signed by,” we sell the item as-is, and without warranty of any kind. When we do make an explicit authenticity warranty, without exception, any changes, alterations, losses, cleaning, polishing, varnishing, varnish removal voids that warranty, which is good for 30 days from purchase. The return of warranty items must be accompanied by a dated signed written statement from the recognized expert on the artist, on his or her letterhead containing contact information, stating that the painting is not by the artist as explicitly represented. For the purposes of this guarantee, the “expert” is the person recognized by one of the premier international sale houses as the expert on the artist, or has authored a published Catalogue Raisonné for the artist. Appraisers and authenticators are not one and the same; for the purposes of the 30 day authenticity guarantee, opinions of appraisers are not considered expert opinions on paintings’ authenticity. When we receive a valid claim, we will refund the original offer amount, but no postage amounts.
Payment: Online payments via PayPal.
I cannot mail to unconfirmed addresses given to PayPal: that makes me liable to charge-backs: That’s because an unconfirmed address is an indication that the addressee and credit card or bank account owner are possibly not one and the same.
Our response: We have the greatest customers in the world. They love art, communicate with us, and pay remarkably fast. As soon as I get your payment I enter your positive response. Then I knock myself out priority-mailing your item within 24 hours of payment. So thanks for entering the positive response that good art, great packing, fast mailing, quick and open communication, and top customer service warrants!

Please Note: Unlike fineamericanart’s sale items, our fixed-price store items are subject to prior sale, and are subject to being removed from sale.
I occasionally get eMails with the question “Do you guarantee this items authenticity?” The answer is “Yes!“ if the ad explicitly guarantees the items authenticity. In other words, if I can guarantee it, I will, and the ad will say so, and there’s no need to ask. Otherwise authenticity is not guaranteed, and will not be guaranteed after the sale or privately during the sale, so please read the ad!
Please do not request that I understate your offer amount or item value on invoices or customs forms. We are happy to answer any other questions about an sale.
If payment is not received within 10 days of end of sale, unless buyer and I have made other arrangements, sale will be automatically revoked and/or item will be re-listed.
I take pride in describing items accurately. Satisfaction is guaranteed as worded above (please read “offer with Confidence”).
I cannot always be sure of the age, origin, maker/artist, and sometimes not even materials of an item, but if I have firsthand knowledge about an item, or anecdotal or documentary material, I will always include it.
Occasionally, after the sale, I get a request to include more provenance. I provide all known information in the ad, so please read the ad! I like hearing from you and I want to resolve any questions you might have before you offer.
I reserve the right to remove and block offers and buyers with low response, bad response, or no response who fail to adequately identify themselves on request. While I’ve got the profit motive, it doesn’t overide my attitude about bad manners; and I always permanently block buyers who send rude or abusive communications. I always permanently block buyers who give a winning offer and subsequently ask for cancellation of the sale (the offerding process process involves three clear steps, and face it, you can‘t place a offer by mistake!)
Thanks for offerding and Good Luck
