The textile is carefully applied to a flax linen substrate, which provides a border between the textile and frame. This product is available in our lucite frame. Our signature gold St. Frank plate is featured in the bottom right-hand corner of each piece.

Polishing

Surface gloss can be maintained by using a soft cloth and specialty plastic cleaner or polish, following cleaning fluid container instructions.

Cleaning

Begin by gently blowing away any loose dust or dirt from the lucite surface. Using a mild soap solution or a plastic cleaner and a non-abrasive lint-free cloth, wipe the surface using light pressure. To remove grease, oil, or tar deposits use hexane or kerosene followed by a soap solution.

Removing Scratches

Fine scratches may be removed by hand polishing with a plastic polish scratch remover. Remove all residue and polish with a soft cloth.

Framed textiles are custom framed once they are ordered. Allow 4-5 weeks for framing and delivery. Expedited options may be available by emailing service@stfrank.com.

This item is fully refundable if returned within 30 days of delivery.

Provenance

This St. Frank antique topi was worn by a child under the Indian Mughal Empire. The Mughal Empire was a Persianate empire that occupied most of Northern India from the 16th century to the mid 18th century. This period of peace was a prosperous time for art and architecture, blending elements from Islamic, Persian, Ottoman Turkish, Indian, and European Renaissance styles. The Taj Mahal was built during this era and is regarded by many as the finest example of Mughal architecture. In many Mughal paintings, men and children are depicted wearing these topi, or hats, during prayer.
