Surfing in between the category styles, you’ll see an abundant use of gold and lacquer mixed together. Black and white are the two primary colors used to reproduce very antique gilt frames as Renaissance, Baroque, and Neoclassical models.

The title of this paragraph contains an excellent question. I want first to explain the difference between these two excellent materials that we use to create antique gilt frames. Dutch Gold Leaf is made of copper and zinc. It is very ductile. In fact, it comes in thin square sheets of 14 by 14 cms.

Genuine Gold Leaf is made 100% of gold, and that’s why it costs much more than Dutch metal leaf. There is not much to say about the quality of gold because any human being already knows it. So now it is time to explain the difference between these two materials regarding the production of gilded frames.
If you need exclusive reproductions of antique gilt frames with a very old look, you don’t need to spend money in real gold because you won’t be able to distinguish it from Dutch gold leaf. When Master gilders lay a few hands of shellac on the gilded surface to create a dark patina, you will not be able to tell apart real gold from Dutch gold. The Patina made of dark shellac will cover the brightening of the gold. The frame surface will finally seem an antique gilding because of the tiny cracks and the little broken parts that gilders fake in order to realize a good replica of an antique gilt frame.
With that said, if you need to buy more valuable products, than you got to go for gold leaf picture frames. The use of genuine gold will raise the price up to 30%, and in some cases, with the use of water gilding, which is a very ancient gilding technique, the cost can rise up to 70%.
Check the items above and order your favorite one. Remember that the whole production of antique gilded frames for sale can be tailored for any of your paintings. This should probably be the most significant advantage of buying a reproduction instead of buying an authentic one. You never find original frames in the size that you need.
Change, if you wish, the finishing of any one of our products, for example, mixing lacquer and gold together. You can modify shapes and sections width of our gilded frames at your convenience.
Tell us a color of lacquer that you would like to see on our replicas; mail us a picture of it, and we will lacquer the frame with your favorite color. You can either change the rabbet to show more of the outer edge of the painting or to cover it as you need. We usually can change the overlap of the profile molding in the exact size you give us.
In some cases, we don’t add a cost for changes, but sometimes we have to. It depends on the kind of work and the time necessary to realize it. Therefore mail us first your ideas, and we will approve the changes and communicate you the sum to add on the total amount to pay.

Even though we don’t suggest to personalize our cheap antique gilt picture frames because the price would then rise significantly, we give customers the chance to pick among a vast quantity of profiles. Therefore in the super cheap catalog, you find moldings with different section widths, you find gold, silver, and many kinds of lacquer finishings.
We grouped the models around their profile. Therefore besides any profile, which is sketched with its measures, there are plenty of frames with the same structures but realized in different finishes. Anyone is labeled with a long code that you got to give us to identify the exact finishing of the model you want yo buy.
There is an outstanding innovation we want to share here: We can build huge antique gilded frames for extra size paintings or mirrors. We have got the right technology to craft products that can be easily mounted at your place. We deliver them dismounted, and you will be able to mount them with glue and screws.
Of course, when we refer to large antique gold frames for sale, we refer not just to bigger structures, but wider profiles as well. We can realize moldings with a section width up to 40 cm for a relatively reasonable price. How do we accomplish that? We’ve been studying the system for quite a long time. Our remarkable innovation is to put together a few profiles to create custom molding frames super large, solid, and with an elegant style.
The above described process takes, of course, a long time to be done. First, we have to go through the step of which molding to select for a balanced shape. In fact, they have to be compatible with not much of a work. Second, we stick them together, and we prepare a new finishing that can homogenize the entire profile and make it seem like just one solid piece.
