The small sweetheart photo frame was made from aluminum and is pleasingly etched with a flower design.

The photo glass and stand legs are aircraft plexi- glass.

The back is engraved with the prisoners name. He name appears to be Italian. These type of items were typical of what was made in POW Camp craft shops. It kept the prisoners busy and allowed them to make some money.
