Client Testimonials

“The nicest staff, the best service, and the most beautiful frames in the country.”

Carrie Rebora Barratt
Associate Director Metropolitan Museum of Art New York

“One facet of the relationship is the incredible scholarship and the discerning eye Eli brings to the choice of just the right frame. There is no one who can make a frame recommendation with the same blend of historical accuracy, sensitivity, and discernment. The end result elevates the viewing experience and appreciation for the work of art. The Eli Wilner choice is truly an opportunity to transform a work of art in a way the original artist would have found inspirational. Artists of our own time have collaborated with Eli to frame their work in ways that become part of the art statement itself. Working with Eli is the artist's best kept secret.”

Jim Dicke II, CEO
Crown Equipment Corporation

“Eli brings to every project a sensitivity and a great eye that insures that the final result is fantastic. Eli Wilner frames are synonymous with quality. I am lending a painting to a traveling exhibition. In a telephone conversation with the exhibition curator I was asked how the painting was framed. When I told him it had an Eli Wilner period frame, he was thrilled. The curator knew that the painting in its Wilner frame would look appropriate hanging in any museum anywhere in the world.”

Private Collector New York

“Eli...has made me...aware, as he has so many other collectors, dealers, curators, and interested sensitive laymen, of the vital historical correspondence of the frame and the work of art it encloses, and of the frame as a work of art in itself.”

Dr. William Gerdts
From his book, "For Beauty and for Truth: The William and Abigail Gerdts Collection of American Still Life”

“I just cannot adequately express how fabulous the frame is for the TV – the transformation is so tremendous! We're absolutely thrilled and you've proven yet again to be master of the frame. Thank you for choosing the perfect frame and for making it in such record time!”
