Published at the time of this map, c.19120:
North-East France and the neighboring lowland of Belgium proved once again the "Cockpit of Europe". The hill country between the Ardennes and the Vorges formed an obstacle; the Germans forced this barrier with a rush, and deployed between the Ardennes and Paris. Since their on-rush was stayed, they were generally driven back, and the hill country became a source of trouble. The Germans were compelled to maintain their positions on the far slopes, and when these positions were finally lost they were beaten, they could not defend the hill country.

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.
