Abstract (en)

A picture frame (1) has a cover member (3) having a front and a rear and a viewing region such that a display media (2) such as a photo behind the cover member (3) is visible though the viewing region. A backing member (4) having a substantially planar front face of sufficient dimension to cover at least the viewing region of the cover member (3) is pivotally connected to the cover member (3). The pivot axis is at least substantially perpendicular to the front face of the backing member (4) and positioned outside the viewing region. A magnetic coupling (6) is provided between the cover member (3) and the backing member (4) to retain them in a pre-determined relative pivotal position. The cover member (3) may comprise a transparent plastic sheet. A threaded connection may be provided to clamp the cover member (3) to the backing member (4). The pivotal connection (5) may be about this threaded connection. <IMAGE>
