Large Gilt Regency Frame C1830 - Cornelius Callaghan Dublin, Superior Quality New Glass
Large Gilt Regency Frame C1830 - Cornelius Callaghan Dublin, Superior Quality
We have a wonderfully large gilt frame of a superior quality by Cornelius Callaghan, carver and gilder of Clare Street, Dublin made in and around the 1830s. Cornelius Callaghan was a Dublin based gilder working from 24 Clare Street between 1822–1844 and was renowned for his high quality work on picture frames, mirrors and the like, and this one is no exception.
The frame is large, dense and well balanced which you would expect from a superior maker. It does show marks which is to be expected bearing in mind the age, however the piece is firm, heavy and the colour fair – again about right for the age. There are only two largish pieces of decoration missing, around 8cms on the bottom of the frame. I thinks it’s best to let the pictures do the peddling on this one…
A wonderful classic attic find which radiates elegance, class and clearly shows us that these craftsmen of old certainly where real craftsman of great talent.
