This beautiful antique lobster illustration was brought in for framing.
We looked at different options and the customer selected this lovely dark blue/black moulding which works perfectly with the colours in the lobster. We then looked at various picture mounts including blues & greys which seemed the right choice, but somehow they were a little flat. We suggested a combination of gold & soft white picture mounts but the customer was a little apprehensive, but when we put everything together they looked beautiful with the illustration and the flash of gold really lifted the whole thing. It is a really smart & stylish finish to this striking antique lobster illustration, which was further enhanced by the virtually invisible 'Art Glass'.
It is really interesting to look at different options & combinations when framing artwork, as an unexpected idea can sometimes bring the most successful results.
Love it....Frame it.
