The Heritage Collection, of which the CAMFERED EDGE Frames are part, center on modern interpretations of essential tableware items, inspired by classic vintage pieces.
Simple and boldly designed, designer Thomas O'Brien looked to one of his favorite antique brass frames with fine beaded detailing to create the Cuved Bead group. The ease of modern non-tarnishing pewterplate make its usefulness as important as its design.
A new interpretation of the chamfered edge form, this style has the precise banded and beaded details of the original pieces from which they are inspired. Chamfered corners, commonly used in architectural shapes from the 19th century, create an octagonal footprint and are typically symmetrical at 45 degrees. Crafted in a warm pewterplate, these frames evoke a naturally soft color and refined detail of decoration lending a valuable vintage look.
A classic wide border is perfect for engraving, making this an indispensable gifting option.
O'Brien frequently collects vintage frames for both art and personal images; and objects such as this, which can be dressed up or down, and used in both social and family settings, are at the heart of his concept.
The look is both classic and easily contemporary, for those with masculine or sleek tastes.
Elegantly gift boxed.
