      I'm very pleased with the construction and unique style of the product. However, I wish the frame was set up to hang vertically as well as horizontally.

      Comments about LARGE RECLAIMED TIN FRAMES:

      I had been looking for a nice frame to put a particular photograph of my children in. I am really into antique, vintage, or unique items, and kept coming back to these frames. After much (probably too much) thought, I ordered the black frame. I am so glad that I did, it completely met my expectations. The design seems to be slightly different than what is pictured (really hard to tell though) and the finish on the frame is more of a matte black than a glossy. Also, the frame is wired to only hang horizontally, but it has a wooden backing and seems as if it would be fairly easy to add/convert it to hang vertically as well.

            When I opened it up I was a little disappointed to see that there are several scuff marks on the frame. But my friend, who has fabulous art all around her house, LOVED it & said that she thought that the scuff marks were fine. I took her advice, put a black & white photo in it and it really is a wonderful conversation piece & addition to my home.

              I bought this frame as a wedding gift for a close friend. I was a bridesmaid so I wanted to get her something unique and more personal than just picking something off her registry. This frame did not disappoint! It is beautiful and well made. It's exactly what I had hoped for. She loved it and now displays one of their favorite wedding pictures in it.

                We recently purchased a home built in 1930, and after doing a little research we turned up a picture of our house taken back in 1938. This frame is a perfect companion to this picture. Not only does it have a nice vintage look to it, it is made out of old recycled buildings. We couldn't think of a more fitting frame for this picture. It's beautiful and easy to hang.

                we love the frame. As New Yorkers - (or former) we loved the tin ceilings in the old places (esp. Fanelli's when we got our great veggie burgers). Anyway, what a nice way to display a photo....except the large frame for our 8x10 was much, much larger than expected. While not so much a negative but rather a rethinking of where we're going to put it.

                So unique and a good feeling to be able to turn someone's "trash" into my own "treasure", especially when framing my beautiful son's photograph!

                  This is a gorgeous frame! Was a tad reluctant to spend this much on a frame but am so happy i did. It makes any picture look like a work of art. As mentioned above, the only surprise was how heavy it was. I have various other tin products and love how light they are but this has barn wood backing it, which makes it extremely stable, but also quite heavy. . . . .but i imagine this will protect the pliable tin.

                    Service and delivery comments:

                    My frame was supposed to be white but they sent me a black frame instead.
                    They handled the mistake perfectly...they gave me a $10.00 gift certificate towards my next purchase, they paid for the shipping to send it back and I will be getting my new item soon.
