Abstract (en)

The wall fame for a picture, mirror, etc., comprises four mitred sides, with a levelling device in its bottom side (3). The levelling device is a bubble level system (2). The system (2) is fixed in or to the frame, by adhesive, screwing, etc. and can alternatively be mounted in one of its uprights (4). The frame of the picture, etc. retains its inherent decorative appearance.

Based upon any conventional construction and moreover any line of design, the frame (1) is provided with a small, duly integrated level (2), which is preferably a spirit-level, with which fixing the frame (1) properly to a wall is extremely easy, in so far as levelling thereof is concerned. The level (2) may be fixed on the outside of the frame (1) or be preferably embedded within it, so as to influence its appearance as little as possible, and it may be located on either its cross members (3) or one of its uprights (4), without distinction. <IMAGE>
