Large Photo Frame with Painted Ducks Decoration.
Frame is gilded gesso with a pattern of flowers and leaves. The mount is gold silk, hand-painted with ducks and lilies. Frame measures 35 cm high by 28.75 cm wide. The area for a photo or painting is 14 cm high (it has a curved top) by 10 cm wide. There is a rectangular slot below the photo area, probably once an area used for an attribution. Now, the silk covers it from behind, and is painted in with the rest of the scene. The silk has a couple of faint age spots which do not detract from the quaintness of this lovely item. Fitted with glass. The only downside is that the backing panel is missing, and has been substituted with cardboard. An easy fix though. I think this item is Chinese in origin, as there is a Chinese signature, initials on the rear of the panel.
