Enormous Italian Art Deco Oval Starburst Sunburst Gilded Frame circa 1930

A most curious Italian Art Deco gilded oval starburst or sunburst frame circa 1930. This unique piece retains the original iron hinges on the reverse that allows it to be folded in half for ease of transport and installation. Made entirely by hand each of the individual rays have been attached to the back side of the oval frame with nails and radiate outward in a symmetrical manner. Please enlarge all the photographs to fully appreciate the details that give this Art Deco frame its modern appeal. There is no sign this ever contained a mirror although it would be easy to fit the frame for use as a mirror. Because it is made entirely of wood it is quite light both to carry and hang on a wall (please see the photographs where we have demonstrated the piece in various configurations). We have never seen anything like this piece in scale or shape and imagine it as a piece of sculptural art.
