Hello, Can you please tell me the difference between a PLAIN icon, and an icon WITH FRAME?

Thanks very much.

PLAIN: without frame: the icon is mounted on a level piece of wood. There is a border area (frame) that is only painted around it.
WITH FRAME: the icon is mounted on a sculpted "skafto" piece of wood. There is an area around the icon that is higher than the icon looking like a frame. The frame is not a separate item but part of the wood. These icons look exactly like our photos on our web site.
I hope this helps!
