Our Oak & Cherry Oval Frame is a faithful reproduction of a century-old “Arts and Crafts” style frame. The intricate filigree leaf design is completely hand carved in solid mahogany. The opening size is approx. 6″ x 8″, suitable for a portrait, mirror, or mini-landscape. The frame can be wall-hung, or made as a free-standing table or dresser-top display with a pencil-sized stick in frame’s back. This delicate frame will enrich any room’s decor.
We will reproduce any open-source frame or carving style at your request. We can work from the original, from close-up photos, or from detailed drawings. We can also adjust any frame to fit your specific artwork, so that the corners match gracefully and the frame will keep its proportion and balance.
Materials & Construction
Our solid wood picture or mirror frames are hand-fabricated using kiln-dried Spanish Cedar or Honduran Mahogany. Their construction consists of full hidden tenons in the corners, with a full rabbeted back to receive the artwork. Smaller frames have a hand-planed removable back of 1/4″ thick solid wood, with beveled edges in the traditional style. We can also provide a beveled 16” x 20” glass mirror (oval or rectangular), turning the frame into a handsome antique reproduction mirror.
We provide the following finishes on our frames:
- Antique Hand-Rubbed Shellac
- Distressed Faux Gold Leaf
If you wish to have your frame gilded with true gold leaf by a gilding shop, please let us know so we can supply the frame per the gilder’s preference.
Sizes and prices listed below are for reference only, as all our frames can be custom-made to fit your media. The prices below are examples of common-sized frames, manufactured in Spanish Cedar, excluding shipping costs. For products in Honduran Mahogany, add 25%.
