Mary Webster--Federal Stock #9
Circa 1835

  • A beautiful example of a Sully style frame, in which the reddish-brown bole that shows through the gold leaf only adds to the richness of the original surface. Sully frames usually have an imposing presence, and this one is no exception. The molding is both wide and deep. It has mitered corners, and you can see traces of old dull brown paint on the outside edges. The outside edges are flat, with just a little concavity toward the face. On the back of the frame there is some great early patterned blue paper and what must be the original framer's label, Fulton Street, New York.
