For sale is a beautiful vintage school wall map of South America that was printed in Chicago, Illinois by the Weber Costello Company. This wonderful map has wonderfully vivid colors and is printed on a heavy canvas material. Back in the day this map would have been attached to a metal bracket and rod which would have allowed teachers to easily pull down the map for display purposes in their classroom. As you can see, the map has since been removed from the bracket and is being sold as is. This map would look great hanging in your library or study, either framed or as is!

Additional details:

Projection Type: Sinusoidal Projection
Measurements: Approximately 50.25” long x 40" wide
Scale: 1:7,600,000 or 120 miles/inch
Circa: 1950’s.

Item Condition: Wonderful condition considering the fact that it was printed more than 60 years ago! Has some normal wear due to years of use (i.e. wrinkles) but no rips or tears! Map may have been stored in a damp environment as it has a very faint "mildewy" scent which will wear away with time. At the bottom of the map is a thin metal wire which has a drawstring attached to it. This wire has rusted considerably over the years, which has led to it tearing through the bottom lining of the chart in some areas, causing black staining to the canvas (see picture #5). We tend to think this adds to the great vintage look of this piece! The back of map has a few light stains which we believe may initially have been caused by mildew. Colors are still wonderfully bold and vivid! Please see the provided pictures for further details.

Shipping - Sometimes it can be a bit tricky accurately determining shipping costs, especially when shipping internationally. In the event we find that we overcharged you once the item has been shipped we will immediately refund all shipping overage charges in excess of $2.
