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.

The Perfect Size at the Perfect Price
By Carol R.
from Sanford, NC
Comments about Blick Simplon Plein Air Frames with Liners:
As an artist sometimes it's difficult to find suitable frames that are cost effective. These frames were perfect both ways. And the deciding factor was that the frame came in an unusual size to fit my painting. They were carefully shipped and came quite quickly. I am very satisfied.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The size 8x8 frame is difficult to find and it's perfect for my painting.

A solid wood frame of wonderful quality and appearance
Very Uneven Quality
from West Virginia
The quality of these frames is very unreliable. About half the time, the gold leafing is very poorly done, leaving obvious flaws in the production. Blick has always been very good about refunding money for defective products, and/or replacing them. When they are up to standard, they are very nice and a good substitute for much more expensive frames, but be prepared to send a few back.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: Thank you for your review. These frames do have a hand-applied finish — the appearance is intentionally distressed and will vary with the artisan who did the work. Still, please know that your comments have been forwarded to our Product Manager, and we'll be looking into this to ensure that these frames have the quality of finish we expect. As always, we welcome you to return any item that does not meet your expectations. Thats our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee!

Beautiful frames complement paintings!
from Littleton, CO
I love these frames. They arrived wrapped nicely and in tact. Easy to frame my paintings with. Just the right amount of gold lining to highlight but not overwhelm paintings. The end result looks really nice and professional! Will use this specific frame more often.

Two paintings framed with these frames!
Very Poor Quality
from Lorton, VA
Unless you're an immature artist or simply intend to decorate your space with a frame just for the look, this may not be a bad choice. But if you're trying to market your art, don't buy this frame. Frame is very poor quality, and I had to return the product.
Merchant response: We're sorry to hear that this frame was not as you expected, and of course we were happy to accept a return. If we can be of further assistance, we hope you'll let us know. We appreciate your feedback, and we value your business!
Frames are great
from Dallesport, Washington
All frames I have received have been of really good quality
from Kyle, Texas
The frames were packaged very nicely, and arrived in perfect shape.I will say that the finish on the 1 of the 3 frames I ordered varied from the others. Not a big deal, but it did show.
Great looking frame
By Abc D. Efghij
from N. W. AR
Pro: the colors are beautiful and the antiquing (clay slip trail work) really adds to the overall great look of this frame. For the value, this is a great frame to have around just to see what a picture looks like in an espresso/gold frame.Con: the "closed corners" are not completely closed on every corner. Probably wouldn't try to sell a painting with this frame in a gallery.
These frames work great.
By Pastel Artist
from New Mexico
I am a pastel artist and these frames work well to enhance my work. I use a spacer on the larger pieces but on smaller ones I just mount the picture right against the glass. Either way these frames set off the work beautifully.
Def would buy again
from La Quinta, CA
Pros: gold liner rich detail that enhances painting, manufactured well - precise opening for panelCons: affixing panel into rabbet...takes ingenuity
