This is an Italian 17th century Sansovino frame, with carved ornament and gilded surface. Sansovino frames take their name from the renowned Italian Renaissance architect and sculptor Jacopo Sansovino (1486 - 1570). These frames are characterized by ornamentation in the form of overlapping scrolls, volutes, and cherubs. These design elements are attributed to the time period and the Veneto region of the architect Sansovino's work.
