Julie Margaret Launches FRAMtiques
FRAMtiques creates bespoke framed antique silverware displays
Julie Margaret designs and creates bespoke framed antique silverware collections. The table settings ranges from fish servers, to pickle forks, all representative of the time period they were made. The silverware ranges in age from the Georgian (1700's), Victorian (1800's) and Edwardian (1900's) eras. Many of the serving pieces would have been used in stately country homes such as those depicted in Downtown Abbey.
“I return to England to seek the most handsome and detailed silverware available,” said Julie Margaret, founder and designer of FRAMtiques. She visits her hometown in the UK regularly to hunt for antique silverware throughout England.
Many of the handles of the cutlery are made from ivory and bone, which have been beautifully. Each frame is designed and handcrafted in England to suit the chosen display area. FRAMtiques offers pre-made options or will work with the customer to create a one-off display. Customers are able to choose the frame, background color, type and era of silverware.
“The silverware anchors nostalgia and tradition in a modern environment,”
The cutlery represents a time period of great craftsmanship and should be admired like artwork. Not only is each display one of a kind, it is also an art piece that is guaranteed to increase in value over time.
