Picture Framing at it’s Best
French Hand Made Frames
During the reign of Louis XV, interior decoration, including frame design, came to the forefront. The styles of the time reflected more curves and circles replicating scrollwork and swags used in interior design and artwork. When Louis XVI became King in 1774, his reign marked a return to the classics – the Neoclassical period. Designs during this time became simpler, with straighter lines and more symmetry; colors used were lighter in tone; and ornamentation became more delicate.
The French style frames, authentically replicate the exquisite patterns and ornamentations of these various times. The elegant gilding and soft patinas on these frames come together to bring you fine finished corner frames with French style.
These hand made frames are constructed to fit the art, with finishes available in 24 kt gold. Finished corner frames both document the history of fine art frames and offer contemporary collectors a new way to showcase their finest pieces.
The frame collection represents a broad range of periods and regions from around the world. The impeccable craftsmanship has obvious applications for fine art, historic portraits, original art and treasured heirlooms.
