This is a fabulous frame for someone who has a photo that is small, but worth framing. The outside measurements of this square frame is 7". The opening of the matting behind the glass is 3 1/2" X 5".
The frame is 2" thick, but the glass is directly in front of the matting, not at the opening of the shadow box. Because of the thickness of the frame, it just stands up by itself, no support needed in the back. This is a solid quality frame.
The frame is dull, almost like it was painted with milk paint. No shine. Ant it has been lightly sanded on the edges. This would be nice for someone who owns bees, or who supports bees through their latest colony collapse demise.
On the other hand, I have a grand daughter who always called herself QUEEN MEG.
The color says purple, but it is a soft purple, almost like amethyst.
This frame is solid wood which makes it heavy so I have to charge more for shipping than I normally would for a frame this size.
