ORIGINAL FINISH NOVA SCOTIA FRAME, possibly walnut, c1840-60, 22 1/4" x 19" x .85" D, in very good condition. One of the tell tale signs that this is from Nova Scotia is the tongue & groove construction. The round metal hanger is reminiscent of a lot of early 19th century frames. This is ideal also for a period art work, or sampler, replacing the contemporary mirror.
