Swept Picture Frames - Materials

Generally swept picture frames have a decorative plaster finish on a wooden base.  This traditional moulding is applied on top of the mitres, so the corner joints are not visible. Colour finishes include: Ivory with Gold highlights - Dark Antique - Medium Antique - Light Antique. Dutch Gold leaf and 23 carat gold leaf can also be supplied on request.
