The Company

W. King Ambler’s direction in design is driven by the desire and requirement that each piece be Art for a Lifetime. With over 60 years in business, we have refined and cultivated our expertise in creating fine decorative art. The collective appearance of our line is clean, distinctive and enduring.

Our View of What Makes Great Art:

The Images:

We originate and exclusively publish most of our artwork which makes our pictures unique and incomparable.  The subjects and images are largely derived from our extensive collection of antique books. With sixty-five years of collecting, we have compiled an extraordinarily large library of images.

The Details:

Significant attention is paid to every detail of each picture. The matting and framing components are selected to enhance, complement and bring the images to life. Our team of designers and skilled artisans develop each piece one at a time never compromising quality materials and craftsmanship. Some highlights of our product are:

  • Over 300 Standard Finished mouldings
  • Over 100 Hand Finished mouldings
  • Extensive selection of colored and textured mats
  • French mats with and without marbled paper
  • Hand drawn lines
  • Linen wrapped mats
  • Silk wrapped mats
  • Gesso mats
  • All wood frames
  • Made in the USA
  • Manufactured to order

Custom Framing: 

In addition to our product line, we extend our clients the option to custom frame. The same quality standards are upheld when framing personal and special items. Our expertise in framing can lend your own art the distinct and refined presentation of a W. King Ambler piece.
