Here is a great Antique Map of Portugal in Europe and their settlement in South America of Brasilia for your buying consideration. Would make a great gift for a special occasion, or keep it for yourself!
This is a beautiful antique map engraving. The map was originally done in 1702 by Johanne Baptise Homanno as the cartographer. Beautiful images of Neptune (King of the Sea), mermaid and cherubs playing trumpets.
The hand colored map shows a great rendering of Portugal in southern Europe. The map then shows a nice rendering of Brazil (Brasilia), one of their holdings in the New World in South America. The rendering of Brazil is in the left bottom of the map.
Some very minor foxing or spotting. The map was once folded down the middle. We see no rips, tears or repairs to the engraving. All the map is there. Edges have some wear. 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 gold colored wood frame with matting. The backing is intact on the frame to keep dust and dirt off of the engraving. The frame is hung by two hooks at the top, there was never a hanging wire. The glass over the map is intact, no cracking or blistering.
The Framed Antique Map of Portugal is 27-5/8" tall, by 29.5" across, by 1" wide. The map showing within the matting is 20.25" tall by 23" 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.
