Polak Bros

Polak Bros were based in London from 1875 to 1880, and traded from this address; 17 Rathbone Place, Oxford Street between 1876-1879. The business was run by James and Isaac Polak, who both came from Belgium. Some extra details on them, and several other possibly connected framemakers called Polak who traded in London around the same time, can be found on the National Portrait Gallery, British picture framemakers 1630-1950 resource. The frame is classic example of a Victorian heavily compo ornamented cove.
