This rounded, red mahogany picture frame moulding offers a traditional look for awards, diplomas, and other important documents, along with family portrait photography and more conservative art such as paintings of lush green parks, golf courses, and understated styles of traditional art.
The profile of this red mahogany picture frame moulding is 1-1/4” wide and begins at the inner lip with a concave black scoop, leading to a miniature step, followed by a rounded mahogany body. The final outer edge features three black steps downward that complete the profile shape. The overall finish is a smooth satin, which is just slightly shinier than an eggshell finish.
The rabbet depth of this red mahogany picture frame is a mere 3/8”, so this frame is most ideal for matted items on paper. Smooth, rendered illustrations on rigid board or canvas board would also work in this frame, such as highly rendered representational art utilizing glazes through the buildup of multiple layers. Stretched canvases, however, might be too deep due to the depth of the underlying stretcher bars that would stick out the back of this red mahogany picture frame.
Finally, consider using acid free archival matting to visually separate works of art on paper from the picture frame. Various possible colors include White Collar 9501, Hedge Hog 9530, Blue Night 9830, and After Dark 9599.
