Welcome to Lock & Davies Ltd.

Conservation and Museum Framing

Situated in the heart of the East End of London, Lock and Davies have been making bespoke frames at competitive prices for galleries, museums, artists and collectors since 1996. We have built up a loyal client base and many new customers find us by way of referrals and recommendations. We now have a growing number of prestigious galleries on our books.

As well as having considerable technical expertise and experience, all our staff come from artistic backgrounds so we can offer good aesthetic advice in choosing mouldings, finishes and mounts. Customers discuss their framing with those who actually construct them so we can give a personal as well as an expert service. We can also give advice on all aspects of conservation and the best way of taking care of artwork once it has been framed.

We only use the highest quality materials, machine cut for maximum precision, and all artwork is mounted to archival standards.

Orders range from making a single frame to framing whole exhibitions but every frame is made individually and with strict quality control.

We have a recycling policy and most waste is collected by the Schools Scrap Project who put off-cuts of mount board, moulding, cardboard, packaging, Perspex and foam board to good use.
