2.75 PA plain or ribbed

Width: 2.75"

Category: Traditional frames

Type: Neo-classical

History:

This design is based on the ‘Empire’ frame. These came about during the reign of Napoleon I after his invasion of Egypt. The profile is similar to a Louis the XVI frame, but the decoration motifs have become more classical with palm leaves, lotus, and hibiscus flowers directly influenced by the discoveries made by archaeologists, and artists that Napoleon invited along during the invasion. Empire frames also lack any added corner decoration.
