OBJECT & MEDAL FRAMING - From Concept to Completion
All our object and medal frames are framed to full conservation standards. This means that medals are hand stitched into place, so they can be completely removed if required in the future.
Our attention to detail is second-to-none. For example, shown here is an antique postcard, the reverse has been scanned and an archival quality giclee print made. The piece of original sticky tape was placed onto the print, making the print look even more real. The 3D levels of the memorabilia add to the overall interest of the finished frame.

Antique Book Frame with Removable Front
Antique books should never be displayed opened flat or vertically, so a book mount was designed to cradle the spine whilst supporting it slightly closed and at an angle. The front of this display is removable, so the pages can be changed or the book removed completely.

Antique Sterling Silver and Leather Book
As a conservation picture framer, my job is to preserve and protect art and objects, sometimes even if it's against the wishes of my clients.
This little antique, sterling silver covered and leather bound book was brought in by a lady who wanted just the cover framed - she asked me to cut the cover off the book and float-mount it into a frame.
Knowing there is always a work around, I guided her towards a frame that was deep enough to house the book intact, while still giving her the look she wanted.
