A great example of New Mexico tinwork, this metal photo frame is hand-punched in the manner of tooled leather. The frame has a wonderful Southwestern feeling and is loaded with interesting details. In addition to scrolls there are incised lines, numerous wedges and lots of dots throughout the piece. Perfectly Western and uniquely New Mexican this frame will delight all who see it.
The sides of the frame are embellished with aluminum that has been punched with dots forming "S" curve designs. The fan corners are completely covered with alternating rows of wedges, scrolls and dots. The easel-back frame with glass can be displayed horizontally or vertically (landscape or portrait) and works equally well on a table top or hanging on a wall. This metal frame is not a suitable item for children.
DIMENSIONS: The frame measures 5-1/4" x 7-1/4" x 11/16". A 5" x 7" picture fits the frame. NOTE: The glassed viewing area is 3-7/8" x 5-7/8" with 1-3/4" fans across the corners. The face of the sides is 11/16" wide; the wrap-around corner "fans" measure approximately 1-3/4" on the top surface.
Give this frame as a gift or keep it for yourself. It's a great example of tinwork folk art.
