English Learner's Question: glass of a picture?
Could you please explain what the "glass of a picture" means in the following passage?
(Rhoda, a small girl, receives a present of a pair of fashionable dark glasses at her apartment)
RHODA [Looking at her reflection in the glass of a picture]
I like them. Where's the case?
Does this simply mean the glass covering of the frame of a picture? I appreciate any comments. Thank you.

Yes, it indicates just what you said: a picture has been framed behind protective glass, which gives Rhoda a bit of a reflection of herself.
