  We are located off St James’s Street, close to many picture dealers and restorers of fine art and the auction houses, Christie’s and Sotheby’s. Our clients also include museums here and abroad as well as private individuals.

We aim to offer a discreet, high quality service to our customers – quickly and at reasonable prices.

Three-of-us Rollo Whately (at the back) has worked with antique picture frames for many years. He started the business eighteen years ago and has built up a stock of fine antique frames to suit all types of artwork. Rollo still does most of the finishing of reproduction/restored frames himself and much of the fitting of artwork and final checking of work before it is delivered to the client. Virginia Brix has been with the company for 17 long and happy years and her knowledge and expertise are an invaluable asset to the business, in particular in the choosing of frames for paintings and drawings. Borys Burrough has now sadly left us to do a course in woodcarving.

We are also lucky to have established relationships with various craftsmen and women in and around London.  The quality of their work often suprises even me.  Here is one, perhaps, in the making –
