Genuine Antique Map


Maker: Colton.


Antique hand-colored map by Colton, 1855. The Colton firm refused to compromise quality, choosing to compete for sales in the finer quality international market rather than the inexpensive domestic one. Because of this, all maps were engraved by steel plates rather than by wax engraving which was the most common method used at this time.  Very good antique condition, minor wear at paper edges, paper is toned overall, approx. 12.75 x 15.5 inches to the outside of the decorative border.
