The use of frames for individual works of art dates back to the Medieval period and we have seen expressions of the frammaker's art grow and evolve over the course of many centuries. American frame making came into its own in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, when the Arts and Crafts Movement created a renewed interest in handmade objects. Here in Bucks County, important craftspersons associated with this movement added their own voices to the development of American framaking.
