This custom black picture frame features a distressed dark walnut veneer with a dusty black quill pattern along the outer ridge of the profile. A rounded concave scoop drops in from the ridge toward the inner lip. The entire scoop is covered in a dark walnut veneer.
The profile width of this walnut scooped black picture frame is 1 1/8”, and the rabbet depth is 3/8”, making this frame best suited for matted prints, posters, and original fine art on paper due to the limited depth of the frame profile.
This style is inspired by the Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan, who was the first European to cross the Pacific Ocean, and whose expedition lead to the first successful circumnavigation around the world.
It goes without saying, then, that artwork that pairs with this wood picture frame includes antique maps, old world travel motifs, and ships. Other imagery that also fits well includes equine art, landscapes, and monochromatic vintage photography.
Mat colors that complement this custom black picture frame include acid free archival options such as Wet Sand 9515, Ivory Art 9808, Bruxelles 9853, Twilight 9809, York 9861, Sienna 9818, and Sandhurst 9862.
