Antique map geographica 
Old world map tapestries are a highly collectible piece of art, and this piece Antique Map Geographica tapestry is an extraordinarily beautiful piece. It was often said that Columbus who first discovered the world wasn’t flat, but whether this is true or not is debatable. However the amazingly skilled cartographers of the day who were the first to show the world as we now know it to be: round. "Antique Map Geographica" is a gorgeous work by Dutch cartographer Jan Janssonius, and his map in conjunction with his brother Henricus Hondius, was completed and published around 1630. The highly detailed map of the Americas, Europe, Africa and Asia are amazingly accurate for the time. This particular map was one of the first to show the discovered upper regions of Australia. It shows the tremendous dedication that early cartographers had to their craft. Their maps were used by early explorers and an incorrect shoreline could spell disaster for ship and crew. As with most maps of the time, famed explorers and other artistic touches are included with the map, so you not only get a sense of place, but time as well. Antique map geographica tapestry is backed with a lining and has a tunnel for easy hanging. Note: tapestry rod and tassels, where pictured, are purchased separately.

After only 2 weeks, my beautiful tapestry arrived! It is perfect, I just love it, and have had so many favourable comments from family and friends.

Ordered a tapestry to very short timescales just before Christmas... not expecting to receive before the New Year. Extremely surprised when it arrived just before Christmas during all the really snowy weather

...& even more surprised at the high quality of the tapestry. I am now about to place an order for another tapestry for my daughter's 18th birthday.

Highly recommended!
