A 1556 parchment regarding the construction of the 16th century church in Cassa de la Selva (still standing).
Total size of this work is 39x35x1.75 inches. Roughly 20 pounds.
Let me know if you have any questions. We are located in Dundee, Oregon.
See pictures. I purposefully used an older frame that has a couple of (VERY SMALL) dings to compliment the age of the parchment. My goal was to make it look like something that could have been hanging in an estate for years. The only thing I don't like is at one spot along the gold edge of the trim there's about a 1/2 inch where the gold has a wrinkle. It's intact, just not laying down perfect.
Key Words: Home Furnishing, Painting, Sixteenth Century, Historic, Catalonia, Ancient, etc.
