Farewell to a Favorite: Greek Key


Cast Pewter Photo Frame (5" x 5") with "Greek Key" Border (LEO Design)


This week I am sharing some of my favorite pewter photo frames with you.  Sadly, the New York City workshop which designs and produces these frames is closing after 40 years of quality manufacturing.  As of today, I still have a nice assortment of styles and sizes, though, alas, I will no longer be able to replace the pieces as they sell.  Click here to jump to the LEO Design "Frames" offering and scroll downward to the pewter frames.

I'll buy anything with a simple, crisp "Greek Key" motif on it!  I consider it to be the handsomest of graphic elements—whether on a building, interior moulding, etched on glass, or cast on a handsome frame.  To me, it is the perfect combination of elegant flair combined with restrained grace.

The frame above, shown in a 5" x 5" size, will frame your favorite photo in classic, elegant style. Please click on the photo above to learn more about this frame.
