I've written about empty frames many times and always seem to find more ways to use them. I've even been known to remove a mirror from a particularly nice frame and let its beauty stand alone. I did just that with the large mirror/empty frame in the image below. I layered it with another vintage gold mirror and used a canvas chinoiserie panel as a back drop. This vignette peek also includes a beaded pendant chandelier and a turned candlestick. You can see the top of a crown on a Virgin Mary statue too. All is available at our next sale at the CoOp.
What about layering an empty frame over an unframed oil on board?

What about using a plaster ram's head inside a frame with a chippy door
and a burlap garland as a back drop?

I was very sad when this long sectioned frame sold at the Design House. It's one of many of my "seller's remorse" pieces. Oh how I hope to find another and keep it.

Do you use empty frames? How do you display them?
