ORIGINAL ANTIQUE FRAMES

antique_frameFor 30 years FAS Frames & Conservation has been dealing in period British and European picture frames. We have an extensive stock of frames dating from 16th – 20th centuries.

FAS Frames & Conservation specialise in sourcing the appropriate frame for a picture which corresponds to the original, taking into account date, style and aesthetic.


REPRODUCTION FRAMES

repo_framesIf a suitable period frame cannot be sourced, we can supply a reproduction; based on research and experience and, where possible, copied from original frames. We design and run mouldings from which we make frames from all periods. Ornamented frames can be carved or made in traditional compo. We specialise in making frames for a number of British artists with chosen framing styles, for example Sir Henry Raeburn and James Abbott McNeill Whistler.
