ILLUSTRATED BOOK OF NATURAL HISTORY in 4 parts for American Sunday-School Union: Philadelphia.

Size: 15 1/2" x 17 1/2"

Frames:

The frame width is determined by the picture so is not a standard measurement.

The boards are then cut to thickness and the rabbet depth is specifically made for the picture and matt. 
 
During the finishing process each side remains matched. Numerous coats of Tung Oil with Cherry Stain is applied to bring out the depth of the color to enhance the picture.

Each frame is unique to the picture.
