Museum Gift Shop

All frames are guaranteed to be original antique and collectible pieces. They can be purchased using personal checks, money orders, and Paypal. My address is Stuart Schneider, 820 Kinderkamack Road, River Edge, NJ 07661 and my Paypal name is Stuarts1031@ erols.com (note, I put a space in there so that automatic email harvesters don't get my email address). Postage and handling, and insurance (if you want it) will be added to your order once the weight is figured (I need your mailing address to figure postage). I mail using the US Postal Service with delivery confirmation or UPS. Email me at Stuart at wordcraft dot net to reserve the item numbers that you want.

Terms: You can return any item to me within 10 days for any reason. If I totally misdescribed it, I will refund your postage both ways. If you are dissatisfied, you pay postage both ways. Note: Some of these frames are 100 to 175 years old. Generally, there may be some slight damage to the surface or a chip or two. I have tried to make each photo large enough so that you can see what I am offering. Note that the dimensions given are accurate if you need to fit a certain picture. There is usually a 1/4 to a 1/2 inch "wiggle room" so that a slightly smaller image will fit the frame. The "sight" edge is the inside of the frame. I sell frames without the glass. Your local glass shop or framing shop can cut the right size glass for you. If you have concerns, please ask in advance.

The 1850s Mahogany Collection

In the 1850s, one of the most popular woods for frames and furniture was mahogany. Thousands of trees were imported to America to fill the demand for this beautiful wood. Nowadays, good quality mahogany is expensive and sparingly used. The beauty of good quality mahogany is striking. Once the supply of early mahogany frames is gone, I believe collectors with pieces will be very pleased that they own a few.
