Handcrafted and top-quality frames for paintings, mirrors, tapestries and more.
Handmade frames for paintings, mirrors, tapestries and more crafted in house. Our frames cannot be found anywhere else but our studio. The workmanship is done entirely by hand using quality materials such as wood, gessoes, gold, silver and more. We also create copies of antique frames of any size.
Materials used in the manufacture of frames
The main material we work with is linden, and for special orders we use chestnut, walnut, cherry, and pine. We also create wood carvings with our own and client’s models, both for picture frames and mirrors.
We use whiting based gesso and clay bole, both imported and made in-house.
Crafted with our own molds or those provided by the client.
