The Italian picture frame was invented in Italy during the late XIV century. The first tabernacle frame surrounded a religious icon, and the cassetta frame profile from the early Renaissance is still a popular form today. Gilded profiles with punch work, pastiglia decoration, or elegant sgraffito all create the beauty of the Italian frame which remains unparalleled. We share a small sample of our frames collection here.
