Picture Framers ?

Nick gave me a rather fine print by Ludwig Frans Fischer (1848-1915) 'Desert Wind'
So I'm in search of a decent picture framer east or west, so I can choose a gilded frame to to it justice,
with a bit of dust on it will make it look just like the real thing...8)

There is a shop I have used many times with satisfaction on Medina Street about 4 shops past Omar Supermarket and opposite the EL Amir Police Hotel. He has lanterns and lamps on display but the picture framing part of the business is at the side of the shop

Forgot about him perhaps it's because it's under my nose!
However I have only used the guy near the Venus and one somewhere over the railway they did a good job.
