HAND-CUT MATS FOR VC FRAMES
Prototypes for the upcoming Recherché Victoria Cross Limited Edition Medal Frames are in progress.
They feature shaped mats cut in the traditional manner of 100 years ago - each designed and cut by experienced specialist picture framer Neville Crawford.
Focussed attention to detail is needed as Crawford shapes the matting, layer by layer and cut by cut in preparation for the inclusion of complete sets of medal groups, archival photographic portraits, archival documents and solid brass name plates ...
Simple tools are used - a steel straight edge and an Olfa knife. 1260 gsm heavyweight Canson conservation board in an Antique White is the board and colour of choice.
These unique prototype frames, with their individual nuances, will be available for sale prior to the completion of the Editioned series.
Be sure to put yourself on the list as a possible purchaser, requests will be honoured in order of registration of interest
