Opus Jasper Plein Air Frames

Give your plein air piece the perfect hand-finished touch with this distinct, antique-look frame that honours the tradition of plein air. Gussets reinforce the perfect 90° corner. Complement artwork on canvas board, ¾” stretched canvas, and art on paper with one of our 3 beautiful finishes.

Black
This unique black finish is first gold-leafed and then hand painted with a black wash that reveals subtle hints of the leafing. The result is a classic Spanish finish seen in museums.
Silver Leaf
Silver-leafed in a warm, golden silver, this frame is hand-finished for an antiqued look.
Gold Leaf
This warm, rich gold finish is gold-leafed and then hand finished for an authentic aged look.
