        About

        American frames were greatly influenced by English and French styles in the 18th and 19th centuries. Although frames were frequently mass produced in the 19th century and gilt ornamentation was usually cast in plaster or ‘compo’ instead of hand-carved, many beautiful designs originated from this time in America. The Hudson River School frames and the frames designed by Stanford White are exquisite examples. In the early 20th century, American frame makers of the Arts and Crafts movement returned to the art and tradition of their craft by hand-carving, gilding, and signing their frames. The firms of Carrig-Rohane and Newcomb-Macklin as well as frame makers in Taos and Bucks County created some of the most beautiful American frame designs of this movement.

        American Impressionist – The Impressionist style of painting spread to America from France in the early 20th century. American Impressionist artists also painted with a focus on light and color. They selected frames for their paintings by American frame makers of the Arts and Crafts Movement.

        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.
