The edge of this frame is really attractive, as it is wide, wooden and has been designed to look sun bleached. The overall effect is of the country and the moulding around the edge of the frame adds extra interest. The frame is really versitile as it will stand or hang having a metal hook and strong strut fixed to the backboard. It will stand and hang in horizontal and vertical mode, it just needs the little hook on the backboard to be moved around the edge of the frame. The photograph is easily slipped into the back of the frame by unfastening the four plastic clips and the clear glass front gives great protection to the precious photo inside.
