Item specifics

Primary Material: Wood  

Here for purchase is an antique oval wooden gesso frame with convex bubble glass and a picture of a baby.  Please look at the pictures closely as I tried to capture every part of it.  Due to its size of 23 inches tall by 17 inches wide, it was difficult to get the entire frame into a picture that is easy to view. The actual picture area appears to be approximately 13 3/4 inches at its widest and 19 3/4 inches tall at its highest.  I got this measurement from the back piece, as the glass in front is curved.   The picture is of a baby sitting up with her hands in front of her.  She is dressed in what appears to be a white dress and has very striking eyes.  The picture is in good condition.  The front of the frame has some normal wear and tear that is to be expected for something of this age.  There are spots on the front of the frame that are similar to paint wear.  There are many of these spots all over the frame.  None of the spots are large, as most are similar in size to a pencil tip.  The glass does not appear to have any cracks.  The back of the frame has nails that hold the back cardboard piece in.  The cardboard has some wear and will need to be adjusted as two of the nails have gone through the cardboard, i.e. the cardboard edge on that part is separated from the picture.  The front of the frame has what appears to be a ribbon and flower design at the top, bottom and each side.  The ribbon and flower design does have small cracks in the facing and a small chipped flower on the bottom.  The designs are otherwise intact and I found the cracks to be difficult to see. You can see most of it when you zoom in on the pictures with the designs.   The picture inside the frame appears to be in very good condition, but I have not opened up the frame to get a closer look as I did not want to risk damage to the frame.  This is a really cute picture with a nice frame for its age.  Please contact me with any questions that you have.  Thanks for looking



Terms and Conditions:

Shipping is free on this item, but the seller chooses the method of shipping. If buyer wants expedited shipping, then buyer should contact me prior to purchase. Buyer will be responsible for the difference in cost between the shipping methods. Do not buy first, then request expedited shipping because I may not be able to accommodate your request when it is made. I want to accommodate reasonable requests, but I ship from my home. It is rare that I can actually get to the post office during the week.

It is imperative that you read the item description prior to bidding. In the event that you have any questions regarding this auction, please contact me prior to bidding. I usually respond within 24 hours of receiving a message, but I cannot guarantee that I can always do so. I attempt to describe every item as accurately as possible, but I am not an expert. When I state the condition of an item, I also will describe significant flaws. Most items that I sell are used. I try to be thorough with descriptions, however, potential buyers should note that most items for sale are vintage and more than likely have been well loved for many years. This results in normal wear and tear and creates the character that we all love in vintage items. Normal signs of use may not always be specified in the condition report, but should be expected in items that are vintage.

Payment is due within 3 days of auction end. If you do not pay within three days, then I will contact you once to request payment. If you do not pay within 48 hours of this message, then I will open a case with eBay. I believe that good communication is crucial to resolving any issues between buyer and seller. Thus, I will always try to communicate at least once when a problem arises and I hope that any buyers will do the same.

Items that I sell are “as is”. I only accept returns in the event that there is a significant discrepancy between the auction description and item. I want all buyers to have a good experience purchasing items from me. If there are any questions following the auction end or upon item receipt, please feel free to contact me. In the event that a return is agreed upon by buyer/seller, buyer is responsible for the return shipping. I expect that the item will be returned with the same packing materials and box in which it was sent.  IF YOU ARE ONE OF THOSE FEW BIDDERS THAT MAKE BOGUS CLAIMS IN ORDER TO OBTAIN A PARTIAL REFUND WHILE RETAINING THE ITEM, DO NOT BOTHER BUYING THIS ITEM.  I do not give partial refunds under any circumstance.  If any refund is warranted, it requires a return of the item to seller.  Please be advised that upon return, the package will be opened while being video recorded.  To honest buyers: I apologize that you had to read that.  However, if you are confused or curious about this section, please feel free to read the eBay seller discussion boards where a small number of dishonest buyers use this tactic against sellers. 

Please be advised that your bid on this listing is a legally binding contract. This contract shall be interpreted according to the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The appropriate jurisdiction to resolve any legal claims or disputes shall be Cumberland County, Pennsylvania. Buyers in PA will be required to pay 6% sales tax.

I do not accept bids from other than the continental United States. If a buyer from outside the continental United States is interested in this product, please feel free to message me. I may be willing to modify the listing to allow for purchase with the additional shipping cost to be paid by buyer.
