We at Lowy feel privileged to have worked on this Wedgwood framing project with Peter Goulandris. These historic ceramic plaques are extremely important to Peter because of his love of the medium and involvement with the Wedgwood company. It is rare to see a collection of period pieces of this size and quality. From the onset, we intended to care for and treat them as significant and beautiful works of art.
We selected nearly 50 original carved and gilded historically appropriate frames from the 18th and 19th centuries to aesthetically enhance these plaques. Then our expert craftsmen sized and fitted the period frames adding silk inserts, gilded liners, and spandrels where appropriate for each piece. Each of these antique frames highlight the Wedgwood in a way that only period frames can do for a work of art. Lowy is proud to have been a part of presenting this rare, extensive, and beautiful collection to be enjoyed and admired for years to come.
