Refinished large antique wood frame

When I bought this wooden frame it was in its natural state and came complete with a  photograph of a rather serious looking gentleman, possibly a local Maire. 
I have brought it up to date with a modern paint finish -  Farrow Ball Pointing - but it still retains all its original character, even the old woodworm holes to prove authenticity!
The carved bow at the top is typical of the 1920's romantic era and this style is much copied today. How much nicer to have the real thing with original glass. If not used to house a photograph it could easily be made into a mirror, perfect for a bedroom.
