About

Italy was the center of frame making during the Renaissance and Italian frames came to be known for their fine craftsmanship and artistic beauty. The first frames were made for use in a religious context and tabernacle or aedicular frames were created for altarpieces. Molding frames were introduced for secular purposes in the 15th century and marked the beginning of framing as we know it today. The design of the cassetta, or “little box” frame, comprised of a flat panel or frieze with applied raised inner and outer moldings, would continue to be used throughout frame history.

Louis 13th – In the 17th century, France produced extremely ornate and finely crafted hand- carved and gilt frames. Louis 13th style frames date from 1630-1643 and are influenced by Italian designs. They are frequently ornamented with continuous carvings of acanthus, oak, or laurel leaves mixed with and floral ornamentation.
