The Imperial Frames Collection

Fabergé Frames for your most cherished photographs...

Peter Carl Fabergé designed the most elegant and distinctive photograph frames of his time. They were designed, in part, for The House of Fabergé's own stores and were, in fact, shown as part of their collection. As well, he designed some specifically for the use of the royal family and these will be the frames we will display for you here.

It must be remembered that the camera was not invented until the mid-19th century and few people owned them. They were certainly not commonly in use therefore frames were not in demand except by the rich, and photographs were something to be displayed -- especially if the photographs were family photographs.

The families of the Tsars were enamored with the art of photography and, if you could see photographs of their private rooms you would realize just what that means. There were dozens and dozens of photographs in all of their private rooms. In one sitting room, in just one corner of the room I counted 18 family photographs displayed both on the wall and on one table. On Tsar Nicholas' desk I counted 8 family photographs and only a small portion of the desk was visible.

The frames were made for the most part of either enamel guilloché or of gemstone and were frequently set with diamond bezels surrounding the photograph or they had gold decor. They were lavish, exquisitely made and quite elegant. The frames below are all copies of original Fabergé frames and arrive with documentation and in handsome velvet boxes.
