When somebody has a map framed it almost always has special interest attached to it.

We had a couple this week. One, The World Map to trace the family journeys and whereabouts.  The other, of South America went back to school geography classes.

These two oil paintings are typical of the strong, clear colours we associate with works from Ukraine.  Frames that don’t detract allow the subject to dominate.

Framed in a 38mm “pimple edge” gold. 600 x 480mm Cost £38.00

Re-framed in the original frame
that came with the work from Ukraine.

POSTER DAY

ALANSTURK, PICTURE FRAMER, 46 BERNARD STREET, UPLANDS, SWANSEA

01792 465934

A regular weekly feature of our work are posters.  For the customers they have special meaning.  Maybe a visit to the Theatre, or a Concert.  The reasons and subjects are wide and varied.  We encourage folk to frame them for what they are, posters and not ‘overdress’ them.   Generally they are best in a thin profile frame, one that does not detract from the subject.

800 x 600mm. Popular French theme.

Framed in Fest Black £44.25 Complete

Graphite 15mm frame. 600 x 400mm £27.25 complete

REPAIRS AND RESTORATION

Alan Sturk, Picture Framer, 46 Bernard Street, Uplands, Swansea 01792 465934

Cleaning and restoration is an arduous but rewarding task.  We can’t work the impossible with items that are very badly damaged but do have some examples of considerable improvement……..

Partially cleaned oil on stretched canvas. The improvement is quite clearly seen

OPTIONS AND COSTS

With more than three hundred frame options available plus a similar number of mount colours the permutations are very wide.

Here is a guide:  

To frame a watercolour 300 x 200mm with a frame glass and mount comes in somewhere between £20.95 and £26.75

Increase the image size to 500 x 400mm and the cost rises to between £27 and £33

Reduce it to 250 x 200mm and  the cost falls to about £15.50 to £16.95

Remember that those illustrations include frame, mount, glass and all needed fittings.

I also provide line and wash options on mounts in either a modern or ancient styles
