Situated on picturesque Chelsea Green, we are a neighbourhood picture framer offering everything you would expect in this sort of area and a bit more. We recommend a personal visit whether you have a school photograph needing a simple baguette or newly inherited old master requiring something more elaborate.

Alec Drew Picture Frames Ltd, Chelsea Green

We have a wide selection of inexpensive frames whether aluminium, plain wood finishes or simple gilded mouldings (from £7.00 per foot). We step up from that to an impressive selection of factory made mouldings and plain woods which we can hand finish and colour (from £9.50 per foot). At the top of our range we have highly regarded selection of hand made, gessoed and gilded mouldings in traditional and modern finishes (starting at £34.00 per foot).

Diamante Cross All our work is done to a conservation standard and we offer a wide range of mount-boards of varying qualities and colours. We can also offer you decorated mounts or multi-apertures or even that elusive oval.

Mirrors made to size are always very popular. We can provide a mirror either flat or bevelled, in silvered or antiqued glass, in most of our mouldings. The hand-made frames particularly are much easier than trying to find an antique frame of the right size.

You may think that glass is just glass, but we can offer you museum quality, non-reflective and UV reflective glass at a very competetive price.

Recent highlights have included a Picasso plate, an life-size original Mucha poster, pictures shipped from Europe and America. For the last eight years we have had an on-going project with a country house hotel to replace all their frames. We do work for a lot of interior and fashion designers.

In addition to our own work we can put you in touch with people working the following specialities:-

Linnartz

Oil Conservation including stretching or re-stretching, lining, cleaning and re-touching.

Paper Conservation including removing from old backing, removing acidic tape marks, foxing and mould.

Linen backing of Old and Original Posters - The only way of getting an old poster really flat.

Perspex Display Boxes and Mounting - Traditionally used for displaying textile pieces, this is now becoming a very clean and modern way of presenting all sorts of things: That Picasso Tile, the children's paintings or the dog's first collar.

Specialist Hanging. We can recommend several picture-hangers. This can be a great help when moving house and hanging from scratch or positioning a large or awkward piece and the cost is not excessive.
