Framed Tiles!

Framed Tiles!

Having received these little tiles recently we decided to frame them instead of leaving them laying about! (We’re framers… we frame things.) We used a 7/8″ Italian hand-finished distressed black olive wood frame and left it without glass. Each tile measures 4 1/4″ square making the whole framed piece about 14″ x 10″. These tiles were crafted by local artist (and math wizard) Caroline Johnson. Lovely!

Wonderful Frame on Map of Ireland!

Wonderful Frame on Map of Ireland!

This is the actual map used by a Columbia couple on their trip to Ireland, they traveled two weeks around the country. The pinkish line is the route they took. As a keepsake, they had the map framed to display at their home. We mounted the map and used a distressed Italian frame, in a nice warm black. It measures about 26″ x 36″. Lovely!

Nice Olive Wood Frame on Map!

Nice Olive Wood Frame on Map!

Recently we had a customer come in with a map of St. Lucia for his wife’s anniversary present. Apparently the sixth anniversary is the Wood Anniversary (who knew?) and he wanted a wood frame (we have those!) We picked this particular wooden frame as it has insane texture! It is hand-finished Italian Olive Wood, pricey but oh, so nice. We used a linen mat to accentuate the antique feel of the map. I wonder if our customer’s wife appreciates the though he put into this? It measures about 22″ x 28″.

Antique Maps from 1883 and 1865

Antique Maps from 1883 and 1865

We enjoyed framing these two antique maps for a client. The South Carolina map is from 1883 and still has vivid coloring! a few tears and dings, but, then, it is 130 years old. We celebrated the tears and dings by top mounting it on the acid -free board and then using spacers to hold the glass off the map. This big thing measures about 43″ x 35″. The 1865 map is of the pacific northwest, it measures about 27″ x 22″.
