Fantastic Antique Gesso Covered Wood Gilt Frame W/ Clipper Ship Litho Print

17 1/2" wide x 21 1/4" long x 2" deep antique frame with a lithograph-print of a clippership in moonlight.  The frame is the star of the show with wood base and heavy application of gesso  in a flower and basket weave design.  The gesso is covered by a heavy layer of goldtone paint.  The print is not dated and is surrounded by an off-white mat with oval cut-out.  The print is probably a calendar picture and suffers from a scratch and a dent (see photo).  This pieces has a simple cardboard back and a newer hanging wire.  Pre-owned.  There are some fine cracks in the gesso.  The print could easily be removed and a grand print of your own inserted.
