PATRIOTIC FRAME – HORSESHOE – 1917.
The horseshoe has long served as a symbol of luck and strength to the German people. Even today, a small horseshoe can be seen on German automobiles. This oversized, horseshoe-shaped frame measures 6 ½” x 7 ½,” and served as a patriotic demonstration of solidarity and strength during WW I. At the shoe’s bottom is an area engraved with a patriotic statement of support and the date, 1917. No photograph is enclosed within the frame, so you will have the opportunity to one of your choice. The area for the photograph measures 4 ½” x 4 ½.”
A fixed easel appears on the reverse that allows the frame to be displayed on a flat surface. [It is a heavy and substantial frame. Additional shipping will be required].
