Dutch & English

Known for their austerity, Dutch frames use subtle textures and patterns such a ripple and basketweave on both black and gilded frames. As the Netherlands became more Protestant, frames were less decorative, but the wide profiles were made of fine materials such as ebony and tortoiseshell. English frames, especially the Chippendale style tend to show French influence with exuberant carving and sweeping frame edges.
