Over the next few days, we'll be sharing a handful of newly-stocked pewter photo frames, now available in our on-line shop. They are made in a small foundry in New York City.
Pewter is an alloy of tin (about 95%) with antimony, copper and bismuth added for strength. Additionally, these frames have been manufactured with a small amount of sterling added, to give the metal a little more "pop."
This style of frame, which has a "Double Beaded" perimeter, may be the most adaptable of all our frames. Not only will it sit well in a Traditional, Art Deco or Modernist interior, it also gives every photo a subtle "lift"—a very light punctuation—without calling attention to itself. It is shown here in 4" x 6" or 5" x 7" or 8" x 10". And each frame has a "swivel easel" on back which can be positioned for horizontal of vertical use. Please click on any picture to learn more about that frame.
Should you ever find a frame that you like, but do not see it in the size you want, please let us know. We may be able to get if for you!
More pewter frames tomorrow.
