John Davies Framing was established in 1968 after 5 years at Chelsea School of Art and several dismal years teaching, when John inherited his grandfather’s workshop.

It was a workshop like no other, with the likes of ebony, tortoiseshell, ivory, antinomy and the toolmaker’s tools for processing such exotic materials.

The tools and materials were a perfect introduction for making Netherlandish and mid-European frames in the traditional manner for which the company quickly gained international recognition.

Jig-making and in-house tooling extended the range of frames as well as promoting the company’s versatility.
