Exclusive frame reproductions
Being part of the Florentine Artisans, we restore both unique and antique objects in our workshop, as well as creating new designs of frames.
We use sophisticated techniques of restoration in order to recuperate important artefacts. Our specialisation – the Replica frame – is created in the traditional manner with every precise detail.
The original charecteristics of both the Patina and Craquelèt of an antique frame are always respected in our Atelier workshop.
The hand carving is usually carried out using antique wood, in order to duplicate the highest possible reproduction. We work with real gold leaf applied on a particular surface, giving the effect of a Craquelèt.
In addition, the gold Patina is of major importance: it requires a special coverage to be applied and then patiently removed. The various phases amount to a long process that require dedication, competence and a long experience of such work. These specific guilding techniques produce a result that is as close as possible to perfection.
Most of our artwork frames are highly articulated, ornate and richly hand carved. Besides simpler, elegant, more contemporary moulded frames, we specialise in frames for famed paintings of old masters, such as Pontormo, Raffael and Tizian.
Our frames are of museum quality and our clients are primarily fine antique dealers, elite private collectors, galleries throughout the European Union as well as further afield.
