Witt’s Custom Framing of Elkader, Iowa, has a long and proud tradition. Beginning in 1895 with William E. Witt, a well known cabinet maker in the area, the picture frame business is now in the hands of the 4th generation of Witt’s. Not only are we equipped with state of the art equipment but a 100 year old framing hammer is still used to construct the highest quality frame. Composition wood is illegal in our gallery as only the finest woods are used to create that special frame for our customers.
We continue to be an authorized dealer for many major print companies in the United States. Our gallery is stocked from poster art to limited editions to original art. We’re very pleased to carry original art created by Mario Fernandez. His eagle sculptures are exquisite. Our gallery is also stocked with many of our own local Iowan artists. If you’re looking for an intriguing piece of art you might just find it in our gallery.
As you browse our website a page has been created to display hand-crafted furniture and numerous wood projects created by M.L. Witt. As continuing with the Witt cabinet making, M.L. Witt has 16 grandfather clocks to her credit. In the Witt home the first grandfather clock that W.E. Witt made in the early 1900s stands stately as the clock continues to tick into the future.
Our goal is to create a project for our valued customers with only the highest quality work possible. We welcome any questions or comments and we thank you for giving us the opportunity to serve you.
