Examples of Framing

What We Do Awards Services Materials
Below are a few different types of framing we have had brought into us over the quarter of a century of framing.

Train Name Plate
The makers plate had to be bolted on
to a previously sprayed aluminium backing plate before the frame construction could take place.
This was one of two that we did
 for the same client.

Large Turkish Rug
This hand made Turkish rug was one of our biggest jobs, and took a day just to stretch. It was valued at 10,000 and had to be framed using full conservation methods and materials.
Hand Painted African Tiles
These hand painted Tiles were the pride and joy of our client's African safari and we enjoyed designing a box frame that was simple, yet complimentary to the native feel of these beautiful tiles.
Large Photo Collage
This very large photographic collage was over 2 metres long and had to have laminated glass and security bolt fixings to ensure safety.

Ceremonial Sword
This sword and scabbard had to be removable for wearing on special occasions. We achieved this by building specially made brackets into an oak cabinet for display without compromising it's removal.

Netsuke Box
We were recently commissioned to make a little cabinet to hold a client's collection of ivory netsuke's.
England Football Tickets
These tickets were a very fond memory of an England game that a client went to see for the first time with his son.
The Queen & Telegram
A telegram from Queen Elizabeth to celebrate 100 years of life. such an achievement and a joy to frame.
