We are now offering reproduction grain painted frames in a variety of moldings and colors/patterns. These are appropriate for framing antique pieces of art or Americana, and of course may be used for mirrors as well.

These are available in custom sizes and finishes.

We also have an inventory of stock sizes on hand
