Obtaining a frame in the old world style can greatly enhance a traditional painting or portrait, but up until now, finding one hasn't been a practical exercise for most artists. The price of frames in this style can be as high as thousands of dollars, and it can be difficult to find the size you need. Artists have long needed a source for frames in this style, and ASW has finally found one!
These Estate Replica frames are made in the old world manner, but thanks to our source we can bring them to you at much more reasonable prices! These classic frames feature select molded lumber, built up with gesso and clay and leafed with either gold or silver. Some of the styles are also handcarved, aged with Rottenstone or given an enhanced patina using traditional methods. Yes, some of these frames can take weeks to make, but we're sure you'll agree that the price is right. After all, each is an exact replica of a frame purchased at antique dealers, many of whom obtained them from castles and estates thoughout Europe. In fact, each of these frames is practically a work of art in and of itself! All frames come with hangers and wire.
