  • Patent number: 5007189
    Abstract: The present device, in a preferred embodiment, is a flexible plastic strip which is formed to be substantially in the shape of the letter L. The flexible plastic strip is shaped so that it can sit on the rabbet of a frame which displays art, such as a picture frame. The plastic strip is secured to the inside wall and the ledge of the wooden frame so that moisture and/or tiny life forms, such as tiny insects or larvae, which normally reside in the wooden frame cannot penetrate the seal and do damage to the art work. The plastic strip is flexible so that it can be cut and used with any shape of wooden frame such as an oval shaped frame, a rectangularly shaped frame, or the like.
