The epitome of French frame design must be in the sweeping gilded Louis XV frame, with its carved corners and delicate demi-centers. Slightly more restrained, is the Louis XIV, with its delicate “brocade" surfaces while the Louis XIIV frames possess a charm with carved flowers in a rougher "peasant" form. By the time that the Ruins of Pompeii were first discovered, Louis XVI brought back "classical" Greek and Roman design motifs which became the hallmark of the era. The beauty of the gilded French frame will never be equaled. No matter which Louis was king, the picture frames were exquisite. We share a small sample of our frames collection here.
