For more than 40 years, Westchester residents and homeowners who need custom picture framing have turned to Heritage Frame & Picture Co. Nestled between the forest like environment of Westchester County, Westchester homeowners include political figures as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Bill Clinton, The famous Rockefeller estate and numerous art collectors and celebrities including Vanessa Williams.
What makes Westchester residents retain Heritage Frame & Picture Co. as the custom picture frame, art restoration and art installation company of choice begins much further back than anyone alive today.
Heritage Frame & Picture Co. is part of a 4th generation of fine art and picture framing companies which began in lower Manhattan in 1878. During this time, the custom picture frame business was considered a luxury. As artwork, photography, memorabilia and diplomas were items only a few could afford or appreciate. Over the years, the reputation and the knowledge of custom framing that was passed down for almost 140 years yielded numerous benefits.
One of the most important, was the knowledge of understanding how to custom frame a picture so it fits perfectly within the frame. In addition, the skill of how to choose the proper matting and picture frame to bring out beauty of the artwork.
Though the custom framing business seems somewhat simplistic, the custom framing business is much much more. Artwork, photographs, memorabilia, collectors pieces and estate collections are very delicate and valuable. If mishandled, the artwork or photograph can be permanently damaged and lose substantial value.
The skill handed down from generation to generation to allows the company now named Heritage Frame & Picture Co. to possess the little known knowledge of how to properly preserve, protect and care for priceless artwork.
In today’s world where artwork has sold for hundreds of millions of dollars and family portraits can cost up to a million dollars, caring for art is a liability for the ill-prepared.
This custom framing and reframing skill separates Heritage Frame & Picture Co. from the common or standard picture framing and art installations stores.
What Heritage Frame possesses is the master craftsmanship rarely found in today’s world where technology has surpassed artisan tradeship. It is the difference between the skills needed to produce a hand-made Rolls Royce and that of the assembly line Honda Civic.
Westchester residents and business owners appreciate and understand the value of securing a master custom picture frame craftsman like Ted Howell, owner of Heritage Frame & Picture Co.. It is Ted who is the recipient of over 100 years of custom framing knowledge as he is the 4th generation heir to an exclusive industry.
Ted has been working with fine art, masterpieces and family estate photographs since he was a child. Ted Howell studied custom picture framing and art installation under the apprenticeship of his father, who learned from his father and who learned from his father.
Ted Howell understands that Westchester residents, as do his clients throughout the United States and abroad, appreciate art for more than its monetary value. The artwork, photographs, memorabilia, certificates and diplomas represent one’s legacy and joys. Like a parent handing off their child to a nanny, art collectors have to trust the hands they are turning over their precious artwork. It is Ted Howell’s hands Westchester residents trust to delicately frame and install their artwork.

Whether you are in Chappaqua, Miami, Chicago or Washington, DC, very few things in life take your breath away than artwork or a picture. For as the quotes states, “A picture paints a thousand words”. It is not said, well at least not yet, but “A custom picture frame provides the quotation marks.”
