Baroque frames for Monique Mantell's drawings

Sometimes, customers have specific ideas on how they want to frame their work. That was the case of Monique. She thought she wanted a very simple frame for her extremely elaborated drawings. After looking at the options she had in mind, we recommended what we thought it was the best match for the piece. This frame was a very elaborated black and silver baroque frame from our Baroque Collection. Luckily, she was open minded for a change. Since  we are friends, I even joked with her and told her that I refused to frame her work any other way. She agreed to go with the suggestions and Voila!!!!!!! Magic happened. The drawings couldn't look any better. Hundreds of hours of work on those drawings are now complemented with the elaborated frames. We also used museum rag mat and conservation glass from Tru Vue. Aren't they gorgeous?? Thanks Monique for your trust!
