About

English frame designs were greatly influenced by French and Dutch styles. Although frames were often mass produced in the 19th century and the gilded ornamentation was usually cast in plaster or ‘compo’ instead of hand-carved, many exquisite designs were created during this time such as frames associated with the Pre-Raphaelite and Aesthetic Movements. The reeded or Whistler style frame, widely made in late 19th century England and America, was used extensively by James Abbott McNeil Whistler.

Cove – A frame molding, also called a scotia, with a concave profile commonly used in 19th century American frame designs.
