about ten years ago, i bought a beautiful gilded frame in San Miguel de Allende, GTO, MEX, and i always regretted not buying more of them. a few wks ago, i ran into the same framer - Antonio - who lives up in the mtns near SMA and i ordered 8 different gilded frames from him this time. they cost me a bit, but i think the craftsmanship is amazing. i spent around $400 sending them back to me here in the usa, but they arrived the day after i sent them in perfect condition. i just never see frames this good here in this country. Antonio makes them using very old gilding techniques he learned from his grandfather, who learned from his father.
