The 'bubbled' effect on the semi matt background, really makes this frame different and eyecatching. The 'grunge' feel to this frame is really interesting, giving a chunky feel and a perfect surround for a favourite photo. The inner edge next to the aperture is finished in a shiny silver border which contrasts with the black frame and sets off the photo beautifully. The total width of this metal frame is just over an inch, so it makes a real impact and it can stand vertically or horizontally depending on whether you want to display a portrait or landscape photograph and will hang in portrait mode from the strong, triangular ring on the back. The photograph is easily popped into the back of the frame by removing the velvet backboard and then securing it back in place by using the two metal fastener which are rotated into place. The high quality glass front ensures that the photograph is well protected and doesnt get damaged while in the frame.
