Atelier for collodion photography - Frames und cases

Frames and cases for your unique plates

Handcrafted from exotic woods and polished with shellac

The frames and cases are made individually from carefully chosen woods (for example, French walnut, olive wood, cherry wood) by myself. Often, I combine different colors of wood, which creates attractive accents and gives a noble character to them.

The surfaces are polished in many thin layers of shellac according to historical recipes, which gives them a high gloss and a fine haptics.

Cases were used in the past to preserve the valuable photographic unique plates as a piece of jewelry in a well-protected manner. The caskets themselves are beautiful pieces of jewelry when placed on a shelf or desk. They are provided with hinges and a closure and can also accommodate two pictures. A perfect and noble gift for people with a sense of artistic craftsmanship!
