Antique Folk Art Picture Frame, Hand Made Tramp Arts & Crafts Unique Mission

I'm not sure how best to describe this antique picture frame because we've found nothing like it. Sister has owned it for years; it is completely hand crafted and very likely one-of-a-kind.
Best described as a piece of folk art or tramp art, this intricate piece dates from the early 1900's and possibly late 1800's. The back of the frame, easel, and picture surround are hand-carved walnut (notice the back is a raised panel). The basket weave and hand-woven front of the frame combines several materials - possibly reed, wicker, straw, and/or??? Sister will take lots of close-ups but feel free to ask questions or request additional pictures of any area or material. The only condition issue is not very noticeable and can be viewed in the last picture - a small braided foot has separated from the basket-weave leg.

The little foot is still attached but the picture shows the separation. This is the ONLY apology! Otherwise, all is in excellent condition - even the little dangles hanging by tiny braided chains are all there.

Everything is strong, tight, and beautifully finished.... A real credit to this early maker. The frame measures 15 inches tall and 10-1/4 inches across. The picture opening from the back is 6-1/2 X 4-1/2 inches and 4X6 at the front. I think it would also look great with a small mirror.
It does not have glass. This unique frame would pair nicely with a variety of styles - mission, arts & crafts, country, even.... Your satisfaction is our priority. Please contact me if an item is damaged or wasn't adequately described and we will do everything in our power to make it right.

On that note, please also read our description and check out the pictures - we try very hard to provide adequate details and post lots of pictures. It is official, sister and I are retired now and living in the country.

Not surprising, many of the "keepers" we so carefully moved from Boise will not fit in the new house AND sis is still opening boxes. Between her stuff and the occasional estate sale, we hope to be listing things quite some time to come.
