I had a customer with an old (1905) oval photo of her grandmother that she wanted framed to best preservation, visible from both sides and with an easel back so she could stand it on an end table. She did not want to use a free standing easel. I thought I'd share my solution with others. Actually turned out to be quite simple. Overall size of piece is 5.5" x 7.5". Two solid core reverse bevel oval mats suspend the oval photo between two pieces of museum glass. The front frame is Bella Tiny Gold with Umber Diamonds #520196. The entire package is held together with a discontinued Ferossa Roma fillet wood glued to the back with it's edge stained. The easel is composed of a bent rod U shape with black shrink tubing inserted in two drilled holes on the bottom of the frame. Customer was thrilled with the outcome. $ 270.00 + tax job.
