Here you can download two very attractive scroll line borders designed to decorate horizontal rectangular surfaces.

Scroll line borders used to be very popular at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, especially during the Art Nouveau movement. These two frame borders are quite complex, but if you need some simple ones - search the ‘Ornamental Border Designs’ category where you can find a large number of simpler scroll line borders.

Both of these frame borders are very interesting because they are combined with foliage design elements that are characteristic of classic ornaments. This has made the borders look very attractive. Both frame borders come from an the book titled “How to paint flowers, scrolls and fancy borders for up-to-date show cards, posters, display signs and decorating” (Author Thompson William Alexander), published in 1915.
