Double Sided Hinged Frame
Double sided frames can be designed to house a plethora of memorabilia and fine art and are the ideal presentation solution for items which need to be viewed from both sides. The front of this valuable photograph depicts Albert Einstein with the grandfather of the image owner, whilst the back features a hand-written message from the globally influential scientist. In order to easily access and view both sides of the piece at any time, our craftspeople created a hinged lime wood frame which can be opened like a book whilst still remaining attached to the wall. When closed, the frame displays the front-side of the photograph within a deep 12ply heritage white cotton mount board. When opened, the signed back of the photograph is revealed. This design allows both sides of the artwork to be protected behind optium acrylic glazing, which contains an ultra violet light filter and a low glare coating for museum quality protection.
Special security fixings ensure the frame sits flush against the wall without any danger of coming loose when opening or closing the hinge. Small magnets inserted into the interior of the frame keep the design securely fastened whilst on display. This unusual framing solution protects the delicate vintage photograph whilst creating a beautiful aesthetic display piece and an interesting talking point!
