Antiqued frames are mouldings that undergo a unique manual process of applying metallic leafing to the surface of the wood in an overlapping fashion. This is all done by hand, requiring a high level of skilled craftsmanship. The effect of antiquing in either gold or silver leafing is both distinctive and beautiful, and these types of wood mouldings are ideal for framing traditional paintings or media, as well as wedding portraits, documents and gallery displays.
This cool-toned silver frame with a light gold wash captures an antiqued look, perfect for holding documents or traditional paintings. Economically priced, this piece adds a further unique touch with a slight black brush on the edges. Due to the silver leafing being applied by hand, the overlapping lines are visible every few inches.
