Tin Types

Add vintage charm to your treasured photos with these textured, metal frames. The intricate rococo patterns are actually pressed tin ceiling tiles that once adorned historic homes and shops around the Northeast. Salvaged from crumbling buildings and remodeling projects, artist Margaret Taylor transforms them into rustic frames that carry an authentic spirit of Americana. Handmade in Georgia.

Sold individually.

Due to the recycled and handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

Great idea, so-so execution

Comments about Recycled Ceiling Tin Frames:

The picture of the frame on the site is beautiful, like the artist dusted off and cleaned up a tin roof & made it new again in a wonderful way. The one we received was fairly chipped and roughed up, much more on the "distressed" end of the spectrum than we'd have liked, and certainly much more than the picture represents.

      Comments about Recycled Ceiling Tin Frames:

      I have purchased 3 of these picture frames. They just seem to make an ordinary 4x6 photo VERY SPECIAL! I didn't really know that was my goal when I purchased the first one, but it was! I fell in love with that effect, so I purchased 2 others. For me, there is no down-side to this product.

      Service and delivery comments:

      I have purchased many intems from Uncommongoods have have ALWAYS received, prompt deliveries, with my purchases arriving in very good condition. I will continue to be a "Uncommongoods Customer"!

        Comments about Recycled Ceiling Tin Frames:

        This frame is very nostalgic and classic but will both complement and contrast a modern decor. It can be used to display an old photo, a favorite or unique photo or even a saying that you like. it was much bigger than expected which is a good thing because the only thing not so great about this item was the price. it is true to the photo and has a sturdy contstruction. it's fun to look at and wonder where it came from. very cool frame.

            I was pleasantly surprised by the construction of the frame. However, I thought the design in the tin would have had more depth than it does. Perfect for any room!

              This made a nice birthday gift for an artsy friend. A tad expensive though, considering it's made of reclaimed ceiling tiles. Overall a cool idea though, and the recipient seemed to like it.

              Comments about Recycled Ceiling Tin Frames:

              the front metal tile and the back wood frame did not fit together well for optimal photo display -- back is a bit off center which makes photo placement more difficult -- also the cut in the metal for this one is closer to 3x6 rather than 4x6 as advertised -- too bad, I really think it's a clever concept but rather roughly executed

              Service and delivery comments:

              the box was smashed and not well packed -- the metal edges were bent but fixable (soft metal)

              Great idea, frame is solid and painted well. Needs a little extra work. Opening for the picture seems smaller than even 3x5. Edges are a rough, will need some finishing.

                We bought the red frame as a 40th Anniversary Gift. The 40th Anniversary is the Ruby anniversary so we wanted an affordable gift that was cool and red. This was perfect.
