Large Antique Frame

Reproduction of a Large Antique Frame gilt on wood. This 18th-century model is specifically a Roman-style frame known as Salvator Rosa Frame.

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

The carving of this large antique frame is handmade. We use the carved wood pulp for the decorations. Watch a video of the procedure of carving wood pulp following this link to our Youtube Channel. https://youtu.be/fTQHIH9dRC8 

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.
