Our frames are reproductions of authentic frames, which we realize by observing strictly the balanced ornates of antique models. 

Reproductions allow us to frame any painting with any size.

Our frames are gilded in genuine gold leaf under request. We use 22 carats gold leaf. 

If customers don’t request any specific gilding, we then use Dutch gold leaf (imitation gold), which is excellent but inexpensive at the same time. 

The prices on our calculator page refer to Dutch gold leaf finishings. 

If you want to buy a genuine gold leaf frame, you have to add 30% to the standard price of the calculator page in case you choose the oil gilding technique. 

If you want to buy a genuine gold leaf frame made by water gilding technique, you have to add 60% to the standard price of the calculator page. 

We privilege Dutch gold leaf gilding because we specialize in aging the frames. Therefore, the three different finishings are not distinguishable once the frame is finished. 

In recent years, after several researches, we have developed an excellent patina technique (aging process) that does not allow the customer to identify whether the finish is in genuine gold or imitation gold. In other words, we opted to favor the customer saving.

We usually use different woods: Swiss pine, lime, tulipwood, ayous, and pine. It depends on the model frame. 

Inexpensive frames are usually in ayous and pine, while expensive frames are made by combining Swiss pine, lime, and tulipwood. 

To have your frame made in a kind of wood not listed above, it is necessary to inform us before the order. Contrarily, we will use the most suitable wood. 

We may also use other types of wood not listed above.

Our atelier produces exclusively handmade picture frames. Each frame is a stand-alone frame with its characteristics.

During the realization, we strictly observe the model chosen by the customer, and due to the continuous variations of the paintings’ size and thickness, we can’t reproduce the frames with the same identical form of the model displayed on the site. 

It will be our care, based on our experience, to decide, from time to time, which stylistic structure to adopt to realize the model chosen by the customer in the best possible way. 

Therefore, both the design of the section and the photograph are purely indicative of the style and section profile and hardly in any case identical to the model we will realize.

We make the frames in any size. To place an order, send us an email with the dimensions of your painting. 

Indicate the thickness of the painting to identify the most appropriate model to realize. 

Often, it is necessary to modify the profile of the frames so that they can fit properly with the thickness of the paintings. 

Furthermore, depending on the size of the painting, we will decide, on each occasion, the most appropriate modifications to make, emphasizing the strength of the finished work. 

Be aware that the larger and heavier frames require unique structures on the back to obtain solidity. At the same time, they need to be light as well.

We can customize any model of our catalog. Of course, for any change, we have to add additional costs. 

We can change the finishing and the shape of the section frame. You ask for any change, and we will give you the final price.

The delivery time change accordingly the category frame. Usually, it takes approximately 60 days for our selection of expensive and affordable frames. It is instead 30 days for the super low price frames and 10 days for the molding in lengths. 

If you need to have the frame earlier, ask, and we will do our best to make you happy.

We ship our frames with DHL EXPRESS, FEDEX, and DPD and provide a tracking number. 

The shipping time is 3 to 5 days for European countries and a bit longer for the rest of the world.

We do offer an insurance service for shipping. That comes included in the total price. The insurance covers the significant damages.

When you receive the package, if you find it broken, you must inform the courier. Then, you unwrap the box and check the frame. Take a few good pictures of the damage, showing the open package and the frame. 

Then, send us the pictures, and we can open a claim. Usually, in about 4 weeks, we’ll receive a refund from the courier.

When a refund is approved, we decide whether to restore the frame in your location or restore it in our workshop. We could even choose to make a new frame.

As a rule of thumb, keep calm if you find the frame broken! We do not control couriers, and sometimes, we know they don’t handle products with due care.

We promise to give you all the necessary support to get a repaired frame or a new one.

Since our frames are custom-made, each with very specific characteristics relating to the painting owned by customers, it is impossible to return them, as it would be difficult to reuse them for other paintings. 

The frames can be replaced only if they have arrived damaged or with different measurements from those assigned by the customer.


At the time of the order, the conditions described in the FAQ are understood to be accepted by the customer. For any dispute attributable to the contractual conditions described above, we will rely on the court of Bologna.
