    Nope-- much later, it is Victorian. This style looks good with Eastlake style furniture.

    The frame probably dates from the 1870s-90s and was made the same time as the photograph.

    I was lucky enough to find a closet stuffed full of these in my grandparents farm house, Eastlake for sure. Very striking frames, great buy!
