This picture frame was made of ayous, because it is dense but still very light wood, what makes it perfect for frames. Finished with black spray colour. Dimensions 34×34x5cm and 30×40x5cm. It was made on request to accomodate a kind of cap which was a part of Croatian national costume (last photo).

Let me add my “Nice frames!” to the mix, Ivan. Are the corners mitered? Is there glass in the frames? The black really sets off the hat. Thanks for sharing.
