For all fans of chip carving decorating technique, here we present a simple rectangular border pattern that they can use in their carving projects.

The pattern comes from the title page of an old book called ‚Household furniture and interior decoration‘ (Thomas Hope, Published 1807). In the picture you can see what the border looks like, and if you are interested in more details, also find available the two segments that the pattern consists of. One segment is angular and the other one is used to form the side of the border. With these two segments, you can create a rectangular border of any side relationship. Using the second segment, of course, you can make a frieze chip carving pattern if you copy it and arrange the copies next to each other.

Although this border was originally used as a book decoration, any artisan who deals with chip carving technique will see in it a pattern that can be easily used to decorate a rectangular frame such as mirror frame, picture frame, cabinet door frame…

Chip carving decorating technique yields extremely nice results, so we hope that you will send us your pictures to show how you have used this pattern in your work.
