An alleged "silver" map of the world, engraved in a 18th century manner. The map is contained within a gilt metal strapwork border, hallmarked, 19 1/2 inches by 27 1/2 inches (37cm x 56cm), in a ornate, heavy custom wood frame. Released in 1976. There is less than 4 ounces of silver in this map, contrary to other reports elsewhere on the Internet. We owned a damaged example at one time, and took it apart. The silver is glued to a heavy Masonite board, which makes it appear that the silver is very heavy, but once the thin foil of silver is removed from the heavy Masonite board, less than 4 ounces of sterling silver is left.
