The frame itself is finished in a thin matt brushed aluminium and has the words 'We Love Our Mum'. The back is beautifully finished in black velvet and you are able to slide the back out so that your picture can be placed and securely displayed. There is also a stand so that it can displayed on any flat surface. Lacquer coated for tarnish resistance. All Shudehill frames come wrapped in bubble wrap/tissue with a blue gift box.
