Spanish 17th Century Black Cassetta Frame



About

While somewhat similar to Italian frames, Spanish frames are known for their flamboyant style. Usually dramatic with gilt or polychrome finishes and sculptural carvings, these frames were also made with stark ebonized finishes on simple cassetta designs. The 17th century was the pinnacle of Spanish frame making. Lowy has over 400 examples ranging from the 16th – 19th centuries.

Cassetta – The cassetta frame, also called a plate or box frame, was developed in Italy during the late 15th century and widely used throughout the Renaissance. The construction is usually comprised of a flat panel or frieze with applied raised inner and outer moldings. This design can be plain or very ornate.
