The product details say that the frame is made of hardwood. NO IT IS NOT!! The frame is black plastic! For the price this is not worth it! If it had really been a hardwood frame then I would have loved it but I am very disappointed that I paid 69.99 plus shipping!!! for a plastic framed map. Also there is no glass in the frame. The map is a shiny material which gives the illusion of a glass front but it does not take much to realize that there is no glass there. Disappointed!
