Elwyn and Neville Crawford
have turned their picture framing business into a fascinating art form

Customer requests include framing for an Indian head-dress, a steering wheel, wedding memorabilia and stamps

Neville said a skilled picture framer was more than a mere craftsman:

"The framer is also an archivist, historian, applied scientist, designer, interior decorator and assessor

A picture framer has to be able to understand, ascertain condition and identify what it is. It's all about understanding design.  Honesty and integrity are all important in this business"

FROM DELICATE, FADING FAMILY MEMORABILIA TO BIG BOLD PAINTINGS AND STONE WORKS BOUND FOR GALLERIES, NEVILLE CRAWFORD SEES IT ALL IN HIS DAILY WORK AS A PICTURE FRAMER AT RECHERCHÉ IN NORTHCOTE
BUT MR CRAWFORD IS QUICK TO POINT OUT THAT THE "JOB" IS ALSO AN ART FORM AND AS WELL AS REQUIRING SKILFUL DESIGN, A FRAME MUST PROTECT THE WORK IT SURROUNDS FROM ALL SORTS OF PESTILENCE SUCH AS CHEMICALS OR MECHANICAL AND ELECTRICAL INTERFERENCE
