Shown here is a katubah that we framed in early 2009. It is a document that describes a marriage contract in the Jewish faith. Generally, they are beautifully calligraphed and decorated, being works of art unto themselves. They are signed by the bride, groom, officiating rabbi and a witness. We have framed a number of them over the years, with no two looking alike either as the original document or the type of framing that the couple selects.
This katubah is framed in a 3" wide Omega moulding, #OM79978, with a black finish over a red undercoat that has been distressed at the high points to show the red. It also has a beeswax finish over the black lacquer. We used Tru-Vue Museum Glass here, so that every detail and all the color can be seen but are protected from fading.
Matting is Bainbridge 4104 White Silk over B4838 dynasty Red and a 4 ply rag board backing.
