PR Elletson & Co Ltd are a company renowned for its frame making, gilding and restoration. The company was started over 40 years ago by Philip Elletson in a small workshop in Pewsey, Wiltshire; he is a self-taught craftsman to the highest calibre. Now recognised through the art world PR Elletson has framed works for clients such as the National Portrait Gallery and members of the Royal Family, and was also commissioned to frame the Queens 90th Birthday portrait.
The company has grown over the years but still maintains the same values Philip had when the business began and while still in Pewsey it is now based in a large workshop with a highly skilled team, the majority of which have worked with Philip for around 20 years so their experience and passion for the art of frame making is invaluable to the PR Elletson company.
What we do……
Frame Making: From sleek and modern to Old Masters frames, PR Elletson and the team will be able to provide you with the right frame to enhance your picture whether it is an original oil, vintage print, family photograph or a contemporary abstract piece.
All frames are handmade and there is a wide range of finishes and embellishments for you to choose from. Unsure of what you want? Philip and the team will be able to offer you sound advice and use their years of experience to make sure you choose the right frame.
Gilding: This is the intricate art of applying gold leaf; at PR Elletson we offer different gilding options including 22ct yellow gold, 22ct white gold or bronze leaf. The finish can be varied from bright to muted tones depending on the style of frame you have chosen.
Frame Restoration: Do you have a frame that you love, but it has seen better days – then at Elletson we can transform it either back to its original look, or maybe you would like a different finish, bring your frame along and we can talk you through what is possible.
Finishing touches: There is a choice of glass available depending on your requirements, this includes an anti-reflective and Ultra Violet protection glass to keep your works of art in pristine condition, we will always advise you on what is best for your artwork.
