Waterford Crystal Seahorse 8x10" FrameSale
Seahorse 8x10 Picture Frame is part of Waterford's second edition Classic Crystal Collection. Waterford has been making renowned crystal pieces for more than 200 years, and the centuries of craftsmanship are clearly displayed in this series inspired by the seahorse, a creature with ancient, mythical significance. The Seahorse pattern is based on the crest adopted more than a decade ago to represent the Irish seaside location of the Waterford company. This extra-large, upright rectangular picture frame employs the seahorse design elements evocatively without becoming illustrative. It is decorated with elongated, undulating cuts punctuated with smaller, seashell-like cuts for a sense of wavelike movement. Within the wavelike curves are fields of raised diamond shapes, with corner spiral motifs to delineate the curve of a seahorse's tail. The frame's rectangular shape is softened by a slight inward bowing along each side. A black velvet backing, easily removed by turning four small metal toggles, holds a photo or drawing centred in the frame. A chain-reinforced easel stand allows the frame to stand at a relatively slight angle. The frame measures 8x10 inches, and the easel stand extends back 5.5 inches.
