The unusual imagery of wedding banners central to this 1924 print by Bertha Lum, and giving it its title, offered me an opportunity to use a joinery technique I’d been playing with. “Wedding Banners,” is available from California Historical Design.
The frame is in walnut with a black wash. The sides are 1″ wide, the top and bottom 3/4″. The corners are lap-joined.
Below is a corner sample in a similar design, also walnut but with a clear finish.
We’ve enjoyed framing Lum’s work before. Another lovely print, along with information on the artist, can be found in my post, The Penetrating Imagination: Framing Bertha Lum’s Window on Distant and Hidden Things. You’ll also find a Lum print here in the Portfolio.
Again, the framed print, “Wedding Banners,” is available from California Historical Design in Alameda, California.« Back to Blog
