"Lemon Gold" Frames


There is always a demand for antique "lemon gold" frames. These are sought after for framing antique artwork. These frames are almost always "silver gilt", meaning the leafing is done with silver, and the color obtained by use of tinted finishes. The black markings often seen on antique frames occurs when this surface finish is damaged, allowing the silver beneath the finish to blacken.

Hunting for antique frames can be frustrating, since the frame is never the required size, and must be cut and rejoined, or else there are condition issues. Our custom frames solve these problems. They are available in a number of molding profiles, and colors and patination can be adjusted as desired.






Frames are made to your size specifications, and we also have an inventory of assorted sizes and styles on hand for immediate delivery. Please contact us for more information.
