The odd ding OR light scratch etc after all, this is the very essence of owning an antique frame Please refer to the detailed photos, they are an accurate reflection of the very good antique condition. Each frame has been carefully stripped down of its backing & cleaned professionally - the back of the frame is meticulously tidied of any loose impediments, nails, splinters, dust, glass OR any other abrasions Where necessary, the border is then treated with a high-quality bees-wax and buffed vigorously, giving the wood a fresh lustre and sheen. Unless mentioned specifically in the listing this frame does not have glass OR a backing couriers simply will NOT cover for breakage New glass, however, OR antique, distressed mirror can easily be sourced from a local glazier &. Will generally cost no more than a few pounds.
In most cases I do however, keep a large stock of antique glass should you wish to drop by our location in the North-West & collect a piece please DM for details TOM.
