Tiffany Picture Frames
A More Upmarket Choice
Pictures frames made by Tiffany Studios are some of the most sought-after designs of the framing world.
Despite the surprisingly large number of designs to come out of the house of Tiffany, somehow each one looks so unmistakably ‘Tiffany-esque’.
For genuine Tiffany picture frames, look for those that were manufactured between 1898 and 1920. Some of the most famous designs are as follows:
Nautical and Zodiac motifs and figures (usually in gold color)
Grapevine and Pine needle patterns (usually with a dark sheen used with green glass)
Venetian and Ninth Century designs (finished in gold)
Chinese and American Indian emblems and patterns (tends to have a dark green or brown patina).
Other classic Tiffany frames include stained glass designs and silver embossed frames. With its beautiful decorations, this is traditionally made of solid sterling silver, however over the years less expensive variations using silver-plating and other equally-beautiful materials have been utilized.
