Beautiful Gold and Silver Leaf Frames
These days, obtaining an old-world frame to enhance traditional paintings and portraits can be an impractical exercise for many artists. After all, the price for this style of frame is often steep, and you can never get the size you need or want. These frames add value to an artists' works, and are often the only practical choice for framing traditional portraits.
We have now obtained a source for Estate Replica frames made in the old world manner—taking select molded lumber, building it up with gesso and clay, and leafing with either gold or silver. Some of the styles are also handcarved, aged with Rottenstone or even given an enhanced patina using traditional methods. Some of these frames can take weeks to make but we're sure you'll agree the price is right. Each is an exact replica of a frame purchased at antique dealers who obtained them from castles and estates thoughout Europe. They are works of art in and of themselves.
