Here is a great Antique Map of Switzerland for your buying consideration. Would make a great gift for a special occasion, or keep it for yourself!
This is a beautiful antique hand colored map engraving. The map was done in 1824 by Louis Vivien De Saint-Martin as the cartographer. The hand colored map shows a great rendering of Suisse (Switzerland).
Some very minor foxing or spotting. We see no rips, tears or repairs to the engraving. All the map is there. Edges have some wear. A crease along the bottom edge, not within the map. The map is framed in such a way that the entire map is showing thru the piece.
Not sure what version of this map this one actually is. Any help with that would be much appreciated. Thanks.
The engraving was professionally mounted in a reddish gold colored wood frame with a black perimeter with a green matting. The backing is intact on the frame to keep dust and dirt off of the engraving. The piece was professionally framed & matted by W Graham Arader III of Charles Sessler of Philadelphia, PA. The frame is hung by the hanging wire that is still there. The glass over the map is intact, no cracking or blistering.
The Framed Antique Map of Switzerland is 20.5" tall, by 26.25" across, by 1-1/8" wide. The map showing within the matting is 13.5" tall by 18.75" across. Let us know if you have any questions or need additional pictures. Don’t be shy to make an offer, we are always open to reasonable suggestions.
