New Nielsen Metal Frame Colors

We have recently added some new colors to our metal picture frames. These colors are primarily at the request of our customers. We added German Silver as a warm alternative to Frosted Silver. Contrast Grey is a different kind of dark moulding that many photographers prefer and we added Antique Gold.

The German Silver, and especially the Contrast Grey, can take on different looks depending on the color of the light and angle so we strongly recommend that you purchase straight or corner samples of the moulding before buying frames. It is very difficult to get an accurate idea of how your print will look next to these frames in your display environment by looking at web-based pictures that have reduced color gamut.

German Silver is available in Nielsen metal frame profiles: 12, 15, 97 and 117
Contrast Grey is available in Nielsen metal frames: 12, 15, and 117
Antique Gold is available in Nielsen frames: 15 and 117
Metal frame profile 99 has a special textured version of German Silver called Brushed German Silver.
