Our classic Malachite Photo Frames are made by craftsmen with brass trim and a walnut back. The large frame fits 8″x 10″ photos and the small frame holds 7″ x 5″. Both sizes work horizontally or vertically. These gorgeous photo frames will add a touch of style to a mantelpiece, shelving or on a console table.
Malachite is a very special stone with its amazing patterns in deep and pale greens. There is a long tradition of combining malachite with gilt metal or gold. The rich and powerful of the world have been have been using this malachite and gilt combination for millenniums.
Craftsmen and artists have also been creating faux malachite products for centuries to recreate luxury of the real stone. For example the traditional method to do this is by painting malachite like swirls in different shades of green. Eventually a few very ago I worked out a method of creating a really realistic faux malachite using photography. As you can see from these photo frames, the results are amazing.
We love to combine the Malachite Photo Frames with our Alexandra Malachite Drinks Tray for a truly luxurious effect. The frames are also a perfect gift for any occasion including birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, christenings or Christmas. The photo frames are part of our faux malachite accessories collection. Of course they come in our fabulous Forwood Design gift packaging.
