This distressed honey wood veneer picture frame features a decorative gold inner lip with an embossed wheat pattern, followed by a flat section covered in real wood veneer with brown and yellow highlights, followed by an ascending black or dark brown ridge along the outer edge.

The style of this distressed honey wood veneer picture frame offers a traditional look that is a nod to old world aesthetics and sensibilities. It is a reminder of a time when world travel involved sailing expeditions, and the smart phone GPS equivalent was a rugged hand-drawn map that only privileged eyes could see.
In today’s contemporary setting, this distressed honey wood veneer picture frame would make an excellent pairing with equine art and wildlife imagery, along with beveled mirrors, antique maps, illustrations of historic ocean vessels, and of course pastoral landscapes.
Original paintings on stretched canvas, along with works on paper, prints, posters, and canvas boards are all suited for this distressed honey wood veneer picture frame, although original canvas paintings stretched over a stretcher bar ought to be no deeper than 1” or so, to ensure that the painting doesn’t stick too far out from the back of the frame.
