|The right frame enhances the art!|
Selecting the right combination of frame, mat color, and inner “fillet” to bring out the best in art is rare talent. Left to our own devices, we will either grow frustrated trying to select a frame combination that truly “works” with the art or we will make decisions about framing that we will later regret. That is why our talented frame designers have been given free reign to create the perfect frame options for each of our extraordinary antique art Real Replicas™.
They start with incredible, solid wood frames that are recreations of timeless antique styles,. After considering literally thousands of frames, our designers select the 3 that have the colors and styles that bring out the best in the art. We select from only the finest frames available. These incredible frames come from around the world featuring hand painting, gilding, and finishing.
To these frames they match stunning inner frames, called “fillets” to abut the art. These inner and outer frames are separated by just the right color of 100% cotton rag, museum matting for a the perfect complete look.
Our custom framing is completed with the most expensive conservation glass glazing available. Tru-Vue Museum Glass® not only protects your art by blocking 99% of harmful UV rays, it also almost magically eliminates most of the glare. This incredible, optically clear glass almost makes it appear as if you can touch the art behind it. According to Tru-Vue:
"Museum Glass® is the best glazing option for all framed works of art. It is the highest quality anti-reflective picture framing glass available in the industry. Tru Vue® has a proprietary manufacturing process, called Magnetron Sputtering, which produces an ultra protective, nearly invisible finish. It protects against 99% of harmful indoor and outdoor UV light rays and has the highest light transmission along with the lowest reflection rating of any other glass product. The result is consistent, durable quality and the most attractive display for artwork.
• Reduces reflection by over 85% (to less than 1% of total light), the lowest possible reflection rating available with UV protection
• Provides the highest brightness and contrast levels available
• Optimal clarity for true color transmission
• Greatest color neutrality
• Protect works of art against 99% of harmful indoor and outdoor UV light rays"
In every detail, ours hand built frames are the finest custom frames available right down to the matte black backing paper and our special easy leveling hanging system (that also helps protect the frame corners from separating over time - a common problem with most frames).
The result is the perfect custom frame created to enhance each piece of art and create a masterpiece that will grace your walls for generations. We absolutely guarantee you will be thrilled with your custom framed Real Replica™!
