Frames by Edward Wright artisan Brooks Ann wrote about the custom picture frame she designed to house a valuable Art Nouveau opera poster. Today, we'll begin to look in more detail at how this unique frame came together. Click to see how Brooks Ann designed the custom hand carving.

One of the nice things about Frames by Edward Wright is our location in a historic textile mill in Hillsborough, NC. We recently went outdoors to photograph a series of mirror frames created by the artisans of Peer Tree, Inc.


The cottage garden tended by our neighbors was the perfect setting for these handcrafted mirror frames. The gold and tarnished silver leaf finishes were set off beautifully by the natural setting, surrounded by foliage and pottery urns. And we had a fun afternoon out in the garden with the frames.


We took photographs of over a dozen mirror frames in the garden that day. Click here to see all our Peer Tree mirror frames

Frames by Edward Wright has recently added new samples to our line of handcrafted picture frames.

Sample 5447, shown above, uses 3 inch wide moulding and compo 3703f in the rounded corners. The finish features crushed brass, aluminum and copper leaf over a black undercoat. The use of common metal leaf makes this elegant frame an economical choice. Click here for more information about this frame.

Sample 5240, shown above, features four-inch wide moulding and is finished with tarnished silver leaf over a red undercoat. The clean, contemporary design of this frame make it an excellent choice for oversized modern art. Click here for more information about this frame.
