A still life painting was recently brought in for framing and the customer wanted a traditional, ornate frame to match the style and age of the painting.
After looking through several chevrons from our Traditional English Range , we chose this 1.75" wide swept profile. The frames in this range are all handmade to order so we were able to choose the exact colour - Dark Antique Gold - and add a wash to give the authentic look of age.
The linen and gold slip was added to create another level to the frame and draw the eyes into the painting, rather than the ornate detail on the frame.
We're really happy with this project, it has really brought this dark painting to life.
