Welcome to dickblick
The Simplon frame is beautiful in its simplicity. It's a perfect complement to oil paintings, prints, watercolors, photos or mirrors, in finishes to fit all your needs. The accented liner enhances the artwork placed inside. The frame width is 3-1/4" and features a 5/16" rabbet.
These beautiful, wood plein air frames in golds and silvers are hand-finished with the "Old World" technique of showing hand leafing lines between each individual leaf that reveals a thin black separation line.
Note — Hanging hardware not included.
Color Matching — We do our best to match the color of frames, both on our website photography and in our catalogs, but differences in technology may affect the appearance of the photo on your screen. You are entitled to return, for refund or credit, any frame that does not meet your expectations.
Frame Depth — The depth of a frame refers to the depth of the frame's rabbet (the cut-out area behind the frame's molding that holds your artwork in place). To find a frame that will accommodate your artwork, measure the depth of the artwork, including any matting or mounting materials, and order a frame with a depth that is, at a minimum, the same as that measured depth.
Frame Dimensions — Frames are sized by the opening, not by the outside of the molding. To determine the size of frame to order, measure the outside of your artwork, including mat, and order that size frame. The frame will overlap your artwork ¼" all the way around, so your artwork will fit nicely behind the frame's molding.
Open Back Frames — These frames are meant to be hung on the wall and are sold as just the frame face. They are not shipped with backing material, glazing material, or hanging hardware. The open back frames are commonly used for traditional profile stretched canvases.

One of the best made frames for the money!
from Temple, Texas
This the second one of these frames I have bought. Well made stunning frame that is compatible with almost any painting. I love the added bonus of the gold leaf liner. Highly recommend this frame.

Well Made, Beautiful Frame
from Helena, MT
We bought the Gold frame with Black liner. The gold is very bright. It did not go well with the print we had in mind for it but the frame is so nice that we are going to keep it and use it for another artwork. Highly recommend it!

I ordered these in two colors and was so pleased with them. Great simplicity that doesn't take away from my work. I have used them before. I think I will order several in various sizes and colors, just to have on hand.

First one received was damaged. Please inspect your frames more thoroughly before sending. I received the replacement promptly which I needed due to an upcoming art show.

Nice looking frame, well made. Makes a statement.
By Daniel Robbins

These aren't excellent looking frames, but you can't beat them for the price. With that said, the Gold Crackle looks cheap and terrible and I will not purchase again. The crackle effect is clearly fake and cheapens the painting (this is the same with ALL DickBlick frames with the crackle effect). I stick with the black with gold liner. I wish they came in a few more sizes, especially 6x8.
