ABOUT US

The images and all knowledge of the photographer and his talent might have been lost forever had three uninspiring dusty wooden boxes been overlooked in a provincial auction. Luckily their intrinsic importance was recognised and we began to investigate the possibilities of renovating the scratched and soiled glass plate negatives.

Thankfully, due to the advancement of computer technologies and the availability of suitable software, we were able to employ the services of experts who scanned the plates and removed eighty years of mould and scratches to the emulsion.

It must be stressed that no material changes were made to the images. No enhancements or removal of natural blemishes were conducted. The pictures within this website are as ‘honest’ as the day they were taken nearly a century ago.

This website is ostensibly a showroom for our images. It is aimed at the trade buyer in a multitude of professions. We are offering these UNIQUE SEPIA images as GREETING CARDS, PRINTS, TRADITIONAL LARGE FORMAT PHOTOGRAPHS and WRAPPING PAPER.

We therefore see a diverse field of interest, which might include

  • INTERIOR DESIGNERS
  • ART and other GALLERIES
  • GREETING CARD MANUFACTURERS
  • GREETING CARD RETAILERS
  • HOTELS
  • PUBS
  • CLUBS
  • THEMED and other RESTAURANTS
  • THEATRES
  • ANTIQUES OUTLETS
  • DEPARTMENT STORES
  • STATIONERS
  • FURNITURE OUTLETS

Though aiming at the TRADE BUYER we are more than willing to supply the ‘one off’ purchaser with a specific need. The CONTACT US link will point you in the right direction.

DECROPHILIA was officially launched in 2004 at the N.E.C. AUTUMN SHOW BIRMINGHAM with a stunning series of ART DECO IMAGES.

We are always interested in extending the application of our images to other product fields and would be willing to discuss appropriate suggestions and possible licensing.

We are also able to quote for sizes and variations not listed.
Please note that all images are SEPIA in colour.
