Description
This very large frame is from the northern province of Friesland in The Netherlands and was chip carved circa 1900. This type of carving was done in the wintertime, when little fishing or farming was done. The variety of geometric patterns and the skill with which it is carved is extraordinary. The art of chip carving went hand in hand with the art of Hindeloopen, a style of Dutch floral folk painting (and also the name of a village in Friesland).
