It is the perfect gift to show off the most memorable photograph, ideal wedding present or for a special birthday gift. Lancaster and Gibbings produce a modern range of cast pewter giftware, hand made exclusively in our Devon workshops. Our designs are classic yet contemporary, characterised by the use of delicate patterns and textures. It is the attention to detail, subtlety of decoration, and quality of materials that produce the distinctive look of Lancaster and Gibbings. Shargreen was originally a textured hide taken from sting rays or sharks providing leather used to make luggage. Our Shargreen Frame is 100% fish friendly. We chose to work in Pewter for its natural beauty and because it has a softer look than silver. Pewter castings have the ability to reproduce fine detail allowing the control of subtle textures which enhances this softer look. Our pewter is an alloy of tin and copper with traces of other metals which, compared to antique Pewter, gives a bright finish that does not tarnish. Over a period of time your pewter frame will develop a patina which can be cleaned using a lint free cloth with glass cleaner or spray polish. Metal polish should be avoided as it will overly brighten the finish. Items can also be cleaned in hot soapy water. Each photo frame is supplied in a presentation box.
