        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.

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

        Ripple – Continuous rows of a wave-like pattern frequently carved into ebony or ebonized woods in 17th century Flemish, German, and Southern European frames. The ‘ripple’ frame designs were revived in the late 19th century and early 20th centuries when they were occasionally gilded.
