IRON CROSS – PATRIOTIC FRAME.
Here is yet another example of Imperial Germany’s patriotic items from WW I. This is a horizontally-oriented frame that measures 5.75” x 6.” Its display area measures 5.25” x 3.25,” and is suited for a horizontal rather than a vertical postcard or photograph. The black wooden frame is very simple in design. A horizontal wooden strip, appears below the display area and features an image of a 1914 Iron Cross in its center.
The frame’s reverse displays two swing-out clasps that allow the postcard or photograph to be inserted. The reverse also serves as an easel that would allow the frame to rest on a flat surface. It is a lovely, rather sentimental frame that shows great potential for displaying YOUR favorite postcard or photograph.
