A Flaired Yoshida for a Hiroshige Triptych

This is a lovely nineteenth century ukiyo-e triptych by Hiroshige which we framed in a modified version of our Yoshida frame. We’re calling it the Flaired Yoshida, but it’s just one example of what can be done with flairs on mortise-and-tenon frames. It’s in walnut with a black wash. The top and bottom members are 3/4″ wide, the sides 1″. The overall size is about 21″ x 38″. Trevor Davis made it. While he was at it, he also made a batch of four ready-made frames with these flaired corners, along with a batch of four Yoshidas, all in oban size (15″ x 21″) and in four different woods—all for sale at our new online store, shop.holtonframes.com.
