4 Reverse Veneer

Width: 4"

Category: Traditional frames

Type: Veneer , Reverse


In seventeenth-century Holland, simple, unadorned frames rendered in dark woods, ebony and veneers became increasingly popular. Reflecting the conservative Protestant movement its decorative styles became more subdued, displaying less Baroque ornamentation and limited gilding on frames but using stepped flats with polished surfaces and decorative ripple mouldings to reflect light. Dutch-style ripple frames were originally manufactured in Germany, Spain and other countries instead of Holland. The frames are frequently referred to as "Dutch" due to their popularity in enhancing Old Master paintings from the Netherlands.
