In 1863, the Muir and McDonald Company opened a leather tannery in Dallas, OR. The leather was treated with the traditional vegetable tanning process which took over 4 months to complete. It was then sold to strap and saddle makers around the country. The tannery operated for 144 years, even rebuilding in 1902 after a devastating fire. In 2007 when they closed their doors for good, the buildings and tanning vats were dismantled and salvaged.

The wood used for this frame is Redwood salvaged from the tanning vats. The clear vertical grain is a gorgeous reddish-brown with blackened edges from the natural tannins contained within the vats. See photos for a detailed view.

Frame is 11 x 14 with a 1 5/8" wide moulding. Limited edition of 6. Glass, acid-free backing, and hanging wire are all included. Frame arrives ready for you to install artwork and display horizontally or vertically on wall.

We sand our frames super smooth and rub on several layers of our natural finish to highlight the former life of the wood. We include a card of authenticity that notes the wood species, age, source, and edition number.

Ships within 3-5 business days by USPS Priority Mail.
