        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.

        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.

        Marbelized – A painted decorative finish that approximates the look of marble. Also known as faux-marbre.
