Very romantic and unique, gilded wooden frame with dark pink roses that are handmade out of silk.
They look so realistic atop the burgundy velvet.
The convex glass makes it into a very rare and special wall hanging.
Please visit my Zen Cart powered on line boutique: Mariette's Back to Basics for more information on this vintage French Country Style piece.
Just yesterday, Bella from Bella's Rose Cottage in her post: Something Old showed another antique, convex glass frame with ornate gesso decorations. Bella's has the wood body over-layed with plaster glue compound, called gesso and then sculpted with scrollwork and leaves to create such ornate frame. Very striking and unusual, finished in a brassy goldtone.
Mine is just gilded wood...
Due to the convex (domed) glass it is extremely hard to capture on camera without any glare.
The photo below shows the flash that I used, but less glare...
This one shows more the true color of the silk roses and the burgundy velvet on which they are mounted.
The photo below, taken from the side, gives a lighter color of the velvet but that is just because of the nap.
This pretty much shows the true colors.
