Carved wooden decorative frame with angels and cherubs bearing flowering stems and grape bunches in their arms. On both the sides of the frame the angels are dressed in tunics and gowns with decorated borders and hanging tassels. On the frames top and bottom, shorter than the sides, are more symmetrically arranged angels, though here they are clothed in garments that billow at the edges. At the four corners of the frame there are triangles in which there are groups of tiny angel heads.
