Black frame ‘floating’ type for to showcase ambrotypes, tintypes and photographs printed on raw paper such as cyanotype, Van Dyke brown, salt paper, kallitype, and so on. This frame is good also for to showcase silver gelatine prints with barytha layer.

The frame is an original concept of my own. It’s made of solid wood for the frame and plywood for the back (both bottom board and intermediate spacing board). The frame is brush painted in matt black with acrylic paint.

The back board is nailed to frame and edges are sealed with Japanese Sekisui tape museum quality. Two brass-coated crocodile hooks provide the ability to showcase both portrait and landscape orientated pictures.

The floating frame comes upon request with one of the following options:

  • 4 brass-coated ‘L’ type hooks for to hold ambrotypes or ferrotypes;
  • 8 brass-coated ‘L’ type hooks for to hold my 35×45 cm contact prints from glass plates.
