Posters, whether they display events, objects, people, or places make excellent decorative items when professionally framed. Frames are distinctively chosen to best relate to the color scheme of the poster itself, and quite possibly have similar stylistic elements as well. For example, depicted here is an old German poster framed with one of the signature frame materials of the American Arts and Crafts movement (quarter swan oak). Zugspitze is the tallest mountain in Germany, and in 1926 a cable car was built and it took visitors all the way to the top. The color and texture of the wood offers a sense of warmth and character to the sunny German mountain top scene depicted on the poster, advocating and promoting the cable car attraction.
