This distressed metallic wood picture frame offers an aged, vintage look and features a series of small steps along the inner lip, followed by an indented reverse bead pattern along an otherwise flat profile face. The width of this profile is 1 ¾”, and the rabbet depth is 3/8”.
Due to the limited depth of this vintage distressed metallic wood picture frame, ideal art items include matted works on paper such as photographs, prints, posters, and other thin items like canvas boards, rigid art panels, thin signage material, and mirrors.
The look of this vintage-inspired distressed metallic wood picture frame is perhaps most appropriate for 20th century black and white photography, but contemporary original fine art prints such as etchings and intaglio prints, along with pen and ink drawings, graphite, or charcoal drawings would all be excellent choices to pair with this frame.
In terms of color, don’t be afraid to incorporate artwork that features a splash of color to pair with the raw earthy tones of this distressed wood picture frame.
