    These are fantastic frames at an unbeatable price. One time a frame I ordered arrived damaged and Utrecht replaced it quickly and easily. Only one caveat: these gold leaf frames are easy to scratch...keep the paper corners they come packed with until ready for presentation. happy customer,

  • bad quality frame

    I am very disappointed in the frame I ordered. Before ordering it I read the reviews, noticing where another person ordered several frames and mentioned that all of them arrived with what looked like 'knife marks' around the periphery. I thought it might have just been a fluke when the company responded to that customer's review by saying that those marks are typical of hand applied gold leaf. And although in some cases that sort of thing does happen, in the frame I received that is definitely NOT the case, and I now know that what happened to that other customer was not a fluke. I saw on close inspection exactly where the edges of the gold leaf sheets were applied on the frame I received, and at regular intervals having nothing to do with the actual edges of the applied gold leaf, lines are literally cut into the frame to make it look like they are edges of the gold leaf sheets, but they are definitely not. They are lines that have nothing to do with the application of gold leaf sheets and one of the gouged lines was even right next to an actual gold leaf sheet edge. These gouged lines aren't even straight and look terrible. The frame was also dented, and the gold leaf didn't even cover one entire outside edge in large swaths, leaving dark green areas of paint showing. All in all, this frame is not worth the discounted price compared to other dealers. I'll fix this frame by gold leafing it myself wherever necessary- which I have done on frames before to excellent effect because I actually know how to do it properly. Will never order from this company again. *****UTRECHT RESPONSE***** We're sorry to hear that the finish on this frame was not as expected.
