This custom cassetta frame was inspired by
designs of Arts & Crafts framemaker and
gilderCharles Prendergast (1863-1948). It
features corners that are punched and incised
with an original 'water-lily' motif specifically
designed for the painting. It is finished in
water-gilt 22k
genuine gold leaf on red bole, agate-burnished
on the cap, lip, and within the corner motif.
The gilding has been given a light rub to
expose the bole, and an umber wash applied to
further tone the gold leaf.
