This is quite a plain frame with a natural finish, but the edge has a really tactile feel, becuase it has been snaded down to a beautiful, smooth finish. The corners are rounded making the standard rectangular shape that is usual for a frame of this type a bit more interesting by a softer style. The glass front gives great protection and the strong sturdy strut on the back ensures that the frame stays upright. All four corners have a tiny cross bar inlaid into the actual frame itself and the photograph is put into the frame from the back by removing the backboard. There are two hooks on the rear of the frame, one on the longer side and one on the short side, so it can hang in either landscape or portrait mode.
