    Figtree3 What would you do if you weren't afraid?

    The frame looks a lot better!

    Can you tell if the picture is a real photo, or some other kind of print? From here it looks like a print such as the type that might be put into a new frame in order to make it more interesting to potential customers. It also appears to be stained. Is the wrinkled material in the back a separate piece of material, or is it part of the picture?

    I had a frame like this in the 70's but was told that it was actually quite new..they said the cross hatch effect was from molding process...never did find out for sure but maybe I gave away a treasure.....

    Plastic sheet, picture is a print and stained and the backing looks like cardoard but is very hard and dense almost like a hard piece of leather it actually looks quite old chris 15127596801300.jpg 15127596801801.jpg 15127596802042.jpg

    Thank you, Chris. I was just curious, really. It does appear to have been around for a while. And from what I can tell the image of the girl looks like an older style image.
