Museum Bees challenge the notion that luxury must be expensive. We believe that a different approach was necessary to create beautiful and affordable indulgences for your home. Each piece is created with recycled materials that embrace our history. They are user friendly, beautifully designed and easy to use. All are original works of art made in Louisville KY.
Museum Bees range in size from 1" to 7" and the great majority of which are all made from recycled antique picture frames. The majority of these American frames date from 1860 - 1880. We also use that charred inner portion of bourbon barrels staves. Besides the wonderful aroma, they add a great background to build our creations.
The frames integrate gilded ornaments such as horses, dogs, insects, ceramics, curiosities, and Antique objects into the compositions.
Museum Bee creator, Trace Mayer, signs every Museum Bee and it with the initials of the current Kentucky Derby winner. This year is "A" for Authentic.
