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.

Good all around frame
By John Preston
Good choice for plein air events because just about any subject with any palette of colors looks good in it. Also, the gold lip has a shallower angle and doesn't cast as annoying a shadow on the work as the regular Simplon frame.
Dick Blick is the Best!
from Virginia Beach
I have found Dick Blick to be wonderful, both in the products they offer, but their service and speediness of delivery. The Black/Gold plein air frames they offer are of very good quality, and I am glad I found them! I am adding an image of one of my paintings, and as soon as I can get it into one of these frames, it will be such a great compliment. I also find the oil paints I need (particular ones are not offered everywhere, but Dick Blick carries them all) at very competitive prices. Thanks!

This frame looks much more expensive than it is. It gives importance to the painting you put in it.
