This aged metallic wood picture frame features a brown and black speckled texture that simulates the look of oxidation and tarnishing on a precious metal surface. The concave rounded profile width is 1 ½”, and the rabbet depth is ½”.
The look of this textured, metallic wood picture frame is inspired by the historic kingdom of Avanti, a Bronze Age and Iron Age monarchy from India that produced coins and jewelry among other things. Objects from this era oftentimes have a speckled look from centuries of dirt and wear.
Color schemes and design elements most suited to this aged metallic wood picture frame include grays and earthtones, including fabric textures and cross-hatching patterns, where a monochromatic color field would emphasize age, weathering, and close-to-earth sensibilities.
