Properties of the Empire Picture Frame
This Empire Frame reproduction is made of ayous and tulipwood combined together. The reason we mix two different kinds of wood is to strengthen the structure of the frame without having it too heavy. The heavy frames are not very good for hanging on a wall that’s why we try hard to maintain our models quite light. Spending a bit more is possible to customize this model as you prefer. For instance, you can change the section width, the rabbet size, and the finishing as well.
Section width cm 9
Rabbet cm 1
Empire Picture Frame Decorations

(Antique dark color)
This Reproduction of Empire Picture Frame looks pretty much as an authentic frame because of its color. The gilding is darkened by an ancient technique of aging gildings. We have been used this method since 1905 when our workshop was born in Italy. Check the photographs above in detail to realize how tricky that procedure can be. You’ll see even wormholes and little broken parts on the gilded surface. They are all made on purpose by us! As a result, the frame looks antique and it is not an easy task to find out that is a fine Reproduction, even for experts.
