ANTIQUE Italian Old Master Painting on Copper

Still Life with Flowers in a Vase with an Apple


This is a spectacular old master painting on copper.  This is a genuine old painting dating to the 17th or 16th Century.  One thing that makes this painting great is that it retains the original frame.  The frame is made in the old manner with the gilding and also retains the original hanger.  This type of hanger is used back to the 15th Century I believe (see Italian Renaissance Frames at the Victoria and Albert Museum).  Some of the pictures were taken in bright light to show the detail in the painting, but it is on the darker side due to the old varnish.  The painting measures 7 by 5 3/4 inches unframed (17.8 cm by 14.6 cm) and measures 9 by 7 1/2 inches with the frame (22.8 cm by 19.7 cm).

This is in good antique condition given the very old age.  The frame has numerous areas of loss but it is still nice and tight given the old pegged design and half lap and mitered corners.  I would guess the frame is worth the opening bid.  The paintings has numerous paint losses and in-painting, I would guess from various restoration of this great painting over the years of history.  The copper plate also has a small, less than 1/8 inch hole at the top.  There is some denting and bends / creases to the copper.  This painting and frame are most likely 400 to 500 years old, so expect some condition issues, but still a great looking old painting - Please see the pictures for the details.
