When choosing a frame, we pay attention to dating the work of art in question and determining the art movement it is part of. Personal preferences, surroundings and the nature of the work of art also play a large role. From sober and modest to exuberant gilded carvings: by means of examples you will gain a clear insight into the choice of matching frames we can offer.
We operate within a vast field of experience with almost limitless possibilities. The picture frame has a serving role and is meant to protect as well present the picture in the best possible way. Valuable and durable materials and expert craftsmanship are combined to best benefit the intrinsic expressiveness of the work of art throughout the centuries. We consider ourselves privileged to be in this position and trade.
