Properties of antique silver frame
This vintage silver frame is made of ayous and tulipwood perfectly combined together. We use ayous for the frontal side, the one silvered, and we use tulipwood for the back. As tulipwood is a hard and relatively heavy wood we use it to strengthen up the frame structure and obtaining, at the same time, a higher rabbet height. As a result, the frame results to be very strong but with the minimum weight. You can customize the rabbet size as you prefer. For instance, if you want to show a bigger part of the painting you can ask to reduce it.
The rabbet height can be changed, as most of the other measurements, at the pleasure of customers. In fact, you can use this model to frame paintings with all kinds of thickness.
