Coastal watercolour framed in period frame - Custom washlines

These detailed watercolour of a coastal scene was brought into us by a good customer of ours who wanted it framed in a traditional frame to suit the age of the painting.

So after looking through the Traditional English frames we offer, we chose this 3" Classic Reeded frame which was handmade to order. We chose to finish it in a dark antique gold to compliment the colours in the watercolour painting.

The framers suggested this slightly thicker mount to surround the artwork, and we added bespoke wash lines to add a little traditional detail. Our framers are qualified to The Fine Art Trade Guild standards so custom mounts and washlines are available on all projects.

We used Tru Vue Conservation glass for this piece, as it offers 99% UV protection and it's important to protect the artwork, especially as this was an old piece.

Please get in touch if you have a watercolour framing project that you would like some advice on.
