Vintage Paris France map, framed map - ORIGINAL

HOOP MAP

1960s vintage atlas map, strengthened and framed with vintage wooden embroidery hoop

this. HOOP MAP. details.
All roads lead to Paris!! This map has gorgeous greens and sand colours. Some aqua and orange details too. Look closely and you will even see someone has planned their France travels in biro ON the map!! There is so much to look at you won't be able to takes your eyes off. This one is tight as a drum! In fact, when you tap the map it sounds like a drum!

Gorgeous hung in an office, living room or home studio. Can be hung directly onto a nail or narrow hook. String or ribbon can easily be threaded from the hanger if you want a different way to hang.

size:
total size 6 1/2" (14cm) across, 6 3/4" high including hanger, depth of frame almost 1/2" (1 cm)

The map in this is original and around 50 years old.

Here is a whole new concept in presenting original (strengthened) vintage maps.

A new idea from VintageInclination combining gorgeous antique maps with vintage wooden embroidery hoops! Combining the rustic natural feel of the hoops with original old maps creates a wonderful ambiance of warmth from the past. On the practical side the framed map is ready to hang immediately! Each Hoop Map is an original map - no two will be the same. I love how the maps and frames are transformed once combined together!

To the best of my awareness you will not find anything like this on Etsy...perhaps beyond. I have researched and cannot find anything similar! So, you will be receiving an original vintage map turned into a unique contemporary creation (by hand by me) ready to hang. Being vintage maps and frames they have little vintage quirks and marks from age.

.how. HOOP MAPS. are. made.
First I search the world for vintage wooden embroidery frames! Then I choose maps from my large archive of original vintage maps. Not all maps are suitable to make hoop maps due to variations in paper, size, shape.
Next comes a secret process to get the paper so neatly on the two piece vintage embroidery frame! don't worry - no chemicals are involved. I construct these by hand in my studio. Once the paper is inside the frame and the frame is firm I trim the excess so the back is neat. The paper is very tightly fit in the frame!
Finally, the front of the map is gently painted with a clear satin coating to add protection and strength. Once dry the Hoop Map is ready to hang!
