Reproduction Old World Map. This fine example of ornate cartographic style is printed on 100% cotton, carefully hand-finished and assembled with silken hanging cord.

Portraits of Julius Caesar and Claudius Ptolemy are featured in the upper corners, with portraits of the father of Henricus Hondius (Jodocus, the Elder) and Gerard Mercator in the lower corners. A large and impressive piece, this wall hanging will add an air of sophistication to any room. Imported from Italy. (See close up detail photos below.)
