The Frame Collector's Museum

Antique frame collection with 2,400 frames. 

Olaf Lemke is an expert gilder, frame-restorer and antique frame dealer. Lemke also collects frames. He has 2,400 of them, dating from the 15th to the early 19th centuries. He says: “To hang a frame without a picture on the wall – a pure object – that is the ultimate luxury.” His collection in Berlin, Germany is open to the public six days a week.
