With cut mounts by hand and machine.
The picture frame had many loses and had to have many moulds made. The moulds are then attached, gessoed, boled and gilded, then toned to match. The painting was relined, cleaned and retouched before being varnished.
A very important part of the picture framing process to refit the artwork in the correct way.

Excellent Service

This is the first time we have used them to frame a very old family painting and they are unquestionably an outstanding company to deal with. Very professional and an excellent standard of work. We will definitely use them again for any framing requirements.

Thanks to Gale & Co. for 20 years of excellent service.

We have known Gale & Co for 20 years and during that time they have done lots of work for us, ranging from picture restoration to framing and even helping us choose furniture suitable for a period house. On one occasion they recommended the re-siting of an enormous mirror which significantly lightened a dark hall. They have a very good eye for detail and their advice is always excellent with the work very carefully executed. We now live in a 1970s flat and they are still helping us with picture hanging and recently provided a period mirror which is perfect for a modern setting. Gale & Co. is a very friendly and helpful company to deal with. They offer the sort of service which we used to take for granted in times past, but which is rarely found today. I cannot rate them highly enough.

I always look forward to visiting

Gale & co have helped me over 6 years with thoughtful advice and finely crafted frames and mounts for my own paintings, and others, to look their best. Their service is kind and personal, tailored to you and your budget. All the work has been very high quality whatever the budget.

Graham London As a professional artist my living and reputation depends on all aspects of the work I produce , however I have to transpose my confidence in the final stage to the gentlemen at Gale &Co. These are 'The Go to people'..... for any and everything to do with mounting and framing my Paintings ! We have worked together for over 40 years and I have never failed to be thoroughly grateful for the advise and professional skill displayed! I have willingly lost many a battle of opinion, as to a framing/mounting solution, secure that this is what they have done since Queen Victoria was a young woman !
