This distressed black picture frame moulding features a thin gold lip that appears like a fillet along the inner lip of the frame. The profile then steps up to a flat body, followed by a smaller step down along the outer edge of the frame. Distress markings are then prominent along all edges where the plane changes, revealing hints of red beneath the black, and providing a vintage, antique look. The overall profile width is ¾”.
The best uses for this distressed black picture frame might include mid-century black and white photos of grandparents in their younger years, or small paintings and drawings that color coordinate with the finish. Also prints and posters, especially with an Asian theme, might do well in this picture frame, as would music sheets for piano.
With this particular distressed black picture frame moulding, there’s not a lot of rabbet depth, so it’s best to use this frame for matted photos or works on paper, rather than stretched canvases that would stick out the back of the frame due to their depth.
Finally, consider the price of this distressed black picture frame moulding, and you’ll find that it’s quite affordable.
