17th c. Tuscan Casetta for a Mannerist Frame

We were commissioned to create a frame sympathetic to the style of framing found around late 17th c. paintings from Tuscany. We designed this frame with the museum director, built a series of samples before narrowing down the design and finish to the one we completed. This Mannerist portrait of Judith & Holofernes can be seen in a local Maine museum!
