While wood carving has been popular all over the world, it flourished in Northern Europe where soft, easily cut wood is plentiful. The chip or gouge work called Frisian carving is characterized by carefully executed incisions organized into attractive geometric patterns. This technique originated in Germany and traveled throughout Europe, eventually migrating to North America. The earliest mention of the term "tramp art" in print was in 1959. In 1975, the Museum of American Folk Art presented "Tramp Art", a ground-breaking exhibition which fostered recognition of this intriguing part of the American cultural heritage as a highly significant art form.

This large antique hand-carved tramp art picture frame features extraordinary 4-layer rosettes at each corner. It measures 15 1/4" x 12 1/2" with 8 1/2" x 6 1/2" opening. Glass is included. A remarkable piece of folk art in wonderful condition.
