From Old Master to Modernist, the Gill & Lagodich Fine Period & Replica Frames & Mirrors inventory spans over four hundred years and numbers over two thousand period frames, European and American. We provide custom framing services, collection appraisals, curatorial and identification expertise to museums and private collectors, architects, interior designers, and interested individuals.  

Exhibitions, Lectures, Presentations & Gallery Tours Beginning with dedicated frame exhibitions in Santa Monica and Laguna Art Museum in 1996, principals of Gill & Lagodich have lectured on the subject of period frame history, fabrication, and restoration; presented walk-through gallery talks in their own gallery and many museums, led museum docent and professional educator training sessions, and conducted hands-on period frame clinics for selected museum, institutional, and private groups, as well as national arts and appraisal conferences.

Gill & Lagodich Studios produce the highest quality gilded and wood antique frame restoration, sizing services, custom-antiqued mirror glass, custom-made frame replicas, and fabrication of contemporary gilded and patinated wood, gessoed, and ebonized frames designed by artists, architects, decorators, and our own in-house designers.  Many frames are available as prop rentals for print ads and movie shoots. We are the oldest extant antiques emporium in Manhattan's TriBeCa neighborhood.
