This black rustic looking frame is made from a rough wood and has been stained black to give a rural feel to it. The edge of the frame is deeply bevelled upwards from the outside edge to the aperture, thereby focusing the eye onto the image inside. The edge around the aperture is raised approximately a quarter on an inch away from the glass and has a couple of sculpted lines around the inner edge of additional interest. The outer edge has a single grove with a slightly curved profile to give the frame a softer feel.
The Chalet frame can stand or hang in bothe horizontal and vertical modes, as it has a strong strut on the rear and a metal hook that can be moved to either edge of the frame. The photograph is slipped into the back of the frame by taking off the backboard and then securing it back in place by using the metal tabs which fold outwards and in.
