Original Antique Frames
For 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.
If a suitable period frame cannot be sourced, we can supply a reproduction; based on research and, where possible, copied from original frames. We design and run mouldings from all periods. Ornamented frames can be carved or made in traditional compo. We specialise in making frames for British artists with chosen framing styles, for example Sir Henry Raeburn and James Abbott McNeill Whistler.
We offer bespoke hand-finished contemporary frames for 20th and 21st century paintings. Popular finishes for these frames include paint, gesso and gilding. We stock a range of mouldings and are happy to discuss framing options to suit a variety of artworks.
