Back of a picture Frame


Back of a picture Frame
Originally uploaded by a1scrapmetal.
A very complicated and delicate mechanism to hold a photo onto a thick slab of glass and allow it to stand .
It looks more like a mouse trap.
The photo is of a very old fashioned lady from 1905 ish.

I've viewed many old pictures & frames but have NEVER seen anything like this. Although I don't know if I would use "delicate" and "mousetrap" together! Kidding ya. Very interesting the way it appears to work, and managed to stay intact all this time! Nice piece!!!
