Baroque Wall Frame

Reproduction of an Italian Baroque Wall Frame gilt on wood. This late 17th-century model is available for any particular painting size, therefore you can frame with it any painting. 

Structural properties

This reproduction frame is made with ayous and tulipwood combined together. We use lime for the front side and tulipwood for the backside of the frame. As a result, we obtain the maximum strength with the minimum weight.

You can customize the rabbet width as you prefer. For instance, if you need to cover a bigger part of the painting you can ask to enlarge it. The rabbet depth instead, depends on the thickness of the painting. We will build the frame with the exact depth that you need.

Section width cm 12.5
Rabbet cm 1

Patina (aging process)

“Patina” is an Italian word that refers to how dark and old look to be the frame. Apart from dark gold, the age of a frame is determined by a few cracks and tiny broken parts all around the sides. For this purpose, our gilder hits its surfaces with some kinds of stones.

Also, the wormholes are simulated as well, and you will be able to notice them by analyzing deeply the pictures above. The presence of wormholes does not indicate activity within or a recent flight of beetles. Remember that they were faked by us to specifically age the frame.
