In a choice of gold or black, the frame is inspired by American federal style and complements classic and formal settings.
On September 25, 1789, the First Congress of the United States proposed 12 amendments to the Constitution. Ten of the 12 were ratified by three-fourths of the state legislatures on December 15, 1791. The ratified Articles constitute the first 10 amendments of the Constitution, or the U.S. Bill of Rights. In 1992, 203 years after it was proposed, Article 2 was ratified as the 27th Amendment to the Constitution. Article 1 was never ratified.
The original 1789 Joint Resolution of Congress proposing the amendments is on display in the Rotunda at the National Archives Museum.
