Let’s close-out with another look at our NYC-made frames—this time in their original pewter finish. Pewter—an alloy of tin, copper, antimony and (in this case) a touch of silver—is cast in a foundry in Queens, New York. Burrs and other irregularities are then hand-chased (cleaned-off) before the frames are polished and mounted with glass and velvet backings. Pewter tarnishes very slowly; one only need polish these pewter frames about once a year to keep them looking bright. In fact, many people find the soft, velvety look of darkened pewter attractive and desirable (especially when improved with a light waxing).
Please come into the shop to see our wide range of pewter frames and don’t forget: you’re always welcome to bring your photos to the shop with you. We’ll be more than happy to set-up (and gift box) your new frame with your treasured photograph.
