A sophisticated double sided framing of construction nails from 18-th century. These nails are made from iron and intended for wooden buildings construction. Being able to display them in a manner, in which they are piercing a wooden board and viewed from both sides seemed optimal and aesthetically pleasing.

"OMG!!! I've been framing with Striving Artists since 1993. All of my pieces are so amazing. I love working with J, Boris and Marina. They always guide me towards the most artistic and creative frames... But this most recent piece is above and beyond all my expectations! My Arthur Parton painting circa 1870 looks like I stole it out of the Louvre in Paris! Wow! If you want a one of a kind frame, you must go to Striving Artists! You won't be disappointed."
