Here for sale is a fantastic framed colour chart of the world, on Mercator's projections. The map shows the direction of ocean currents. Taken from the Cosmographic Atlas dated 1891 and published by W. & A K Johnston. The frame is old oak and has a wonderful patina which matches the colour tinting of the map perfectly. 

Stunning colours to plate, part of a set we are putting together. Please have a look at our other listings.


There is some wear to gilt mount to the inner edge of the frame, please refer to photo. This map has been professionally framed using a new mount. Shows some signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.

We are a family company and love sourcing unusual pieces which bring a burst of individual style to the most modern of interiors, creating interiors with soul!
