We specialize in Italian, French, and Spanish Reproductions of Antique Picture Frames for sale since 1905. In our Gallery, you’ll find Baroque, Rococo, Neoclassical, Empire and Renaissance styles. They have a significant role in the field of antique frames for old master paintings. We deliver unique reproductions because we put in practise the most difficult ancient techniques.
See below the two most significant techiniques necessary to realize top quality replicas of antique frames.
To the question about how happened to be that such famous museums use Reproductions instead of the original antique picture frames made in Italy, there is just a simple answer. It’s almost impossible to find in the market beautiful antique picture frames that can fit properly with the old master paintings owned by the museums.
Most of the time, you can find the antique picture frame for sale with the right shape and style. It is anyway improbable that it would have at the same time the right size for the painting. Due to this big problem with the size of antique frames, the “Laboratorio Federici,” which is the corresponding Italian name of the company NowFrames, has framed a considerable number of paintings for the major museums all over the world.
Even the most careful glance of experts in carving and gilding can’t recognize that around the painting, there is a reproduction of an antique frame. Apart from the shape, the carving, and gilding, which makes the difference in our structures is the “Patina.” That is the Italian term to define the tricky process of making appear the reproduction dark, with some little broken parts and with some fake wormholes.
Clicking on the links above you will be able to reach the product gallery pages of the main styles of our reproduction frames. We cover a range of styles that goes from late 15th century to early 19th century.
Down below you find the major period frames that we cover:

We listed above the main shape structures of our antique frames for sale. We tend to realize shapes like oval, round, and octagonal with a square frame at the outer part of the structure.
Why do we advise customers to go for these solutions? We always recommend a square or a rectangular structure of the outer part of the frames because the entire body of the work would be more robust. Also, you will have a product with much more wood and gold for the same price. In fact, order a simple oval, round or octagonal frame without the external square frame, costs the same.
Why would a simpler frame costs equal to a more elaborated one? Because the amount of work to do for realizing both is equal. To realize the simple models is quite a long work.
Do you have an important painting to frame? You will find here more than 150 models of exclusive reproductions of antique frames categorized by price, style, and period.
We think that an excellent Reproduction frame can solve all of your problems without any headache! A Reproduction frame can’t be compared to a shallow industrial copy of an old master painting. Here is why. An old master painting was made by an artist while an antique picture frame was created by a master carver and gilder. There would be a slight difference between an artist and a good craftsman, even if the craftsman lived five centuries ago.
So here comes the difference: we are still excellent craftsmen as in ancient times, but we are not so sure about all the factories out there making copies of very famous paintings inflating the whole market.
Due to this, I feel free to say that there is not much difference between us and a master carver and gilder born during Renaissance time. We haven’t changed so many things in the process of making a beautiful antique frame since ancient times. The techniques used are almost the same and gives us the great advantage of being able to realize beautiful reproductions. See, for example, Massimiliano Gurrieri (Master Carver and Gilder) in action in this video.

Most of our clients get so involved with our reproductions, that after the first order keep on changing all the ugly frames that they owned for decades.
Since 1905 the “Laboratorio Federici” is between the most relevant ateliers in Europe for antique picture frames Made in Italy. Maybe it can have even realized more then 10 thousand! What we know for sure is that the most recognized antique dealers know very well our workshop since it has been founded.
Some of our reproductions manufactured at the beginning of the 20th century already have considerable value. Even if they are still replicas of styles much older, they’ve got a unique taste. Because of the “patina,” and because of the beautiful carving, which makes them look authentic, it’s now almost impossible to define their age.
When a few of the experts out there recognize a frame as made from “Laboratorio Federici,” they declare it as a Reproduction. But at the same time, they give our frames a high value due to the quality and the excellent work.
