Interesting. Thanks for that. And here I was, assuming it was to make room for the fire.

I believe it's actually a standard practice of framers. They will weigh mat's, only 10mm or so, without the customer even knowing sometimes.

Great score! We all should be so lucky.

Have had some framers ask if I want things weighted. Others have just done it automatically.
