3 SHAR

Width: 3"

Category: Traditional frames

Type: Louis XIV , Corner and Centre , Running Pattern

History:

Synonymous with the Baroque and has cartouches in the corners and centres containing shells, leaves or fleur-de-lis on a broadly hatched ground. As a result of this design,attention is diverted from the straight edges of the frames. This design is a slightly simpler version of these frames. Often the extent of the decoration was determined by the wealth of the buyer, the setting the frame was going into or the status of the person receiving the frame. This frame has a slight softening wash with a sand channel behind a rope twist on the sight edge.
