Can I carry on the plane two pieces of picture frames with glass frames?

I had two prints from the UK which I had custom framed in the Philippines because framing job is much cheaper here than in the UK. I am to bring back the said picture frames now mounted on glass frames, back to the UK. Am on Emirates Airline flight with stop over to Dubai. In view of the tighter security measures, can the glass framing be allowed to be carried on the plane and not checked in?
