Old map of Ireland 'A New Map of Ireland Civil & Ecclesiastical' first published circa 1797, republished 2017. This very attractive map shows the civil and ecclesiastical divisions of Ireland 1797. There is much detail such as whether the parish has a Rectory, Vicarage or Chapel and also showing the ancient round towers peculiar to Ireland. The original map was laid on linen with slip case provided. An attractive cartouche at top right with sailing ship in harbour with a church and cherubs. The population of Ireland at this period has been estimated at around 4,500,000 and was rising rapidly. The expanding linen industry and the industrial revolution was providing work and the potato famine was 4 decades away.

We make our own frames from moulding hand finished in our workshops. The standard finish is a distressed black with a gold slip inserted for the larger maps.
We finish the moulding in two other colours, Antique Red and Antique Green. These colours can be used on any of our prints or maps, both reproductions and originals, but have been chosen specifically to suit some of the antique prints and illustrations.
Some of the maps are very big so for weight, shipping and safety reasons we use 3mm acrylic as the glazing material.
