Properties of the large antique frame
This Large Antique Frame is made of ayous and tulipwood. We combine together the two different kinds of wood to strengthen its structure. Tulipwood is the hardwood that fixed on the back gives the frame solidity. Ayous, instead is the softwood, the one that gives the frame lightness.

Large Antique Frame Decorations

Antique dark color “Patina”
“Patina” is an Italian word that refers to how dark is the frame. Apart from dark gold, the age of frames is determined by few cracks and tiny broken parts. For this reason, our gilder uses some kinds of stones to hit the frame. Also, the woodworms are fake as well, and you will be able to notice them by analyzing the pictures above.
