Sansavino Frame – Carved Lime

A contact came to us though the website, from a client in Chicago, requesting a frame for a map by Abraham Ortelius with the style based on an Italian sansavino. The frame was hand carved in lime and the design was taken from a few different original sansavino frames, along with some input from head framer Tim to tie the design together. The process including gilding was completed over a 3 month period with a dedicated time of 160 hours.
