Copper Rings

Victorian English Copper Ring Chain Photo Frame (LEO Design)

Over the years, I’ve had many variations on this theme—rings or “links” of metal forming a a round, square or rectangular photo frame.  But, 99% of the time, the rings are brass—not copper like the frame above.  To my eye, the frames have a vaguely equestrian sensibility. Perhaps the chain reminds me of a snaffle bit or the curb strap on a horse’s bridle.  Made in England sometime between 1880 and 1920, they will bring handsome period style to any photo (of a horse or anyone else)—whether it’s a selfie taken yesterday or a family keepsake of yesteryear.  Please click on the photo above to learn more about it.


Today—and daily through 23 December—LEO Design will be open from Noon ’til 10:00 pm.
