Virtually all the items I sell are “vintage” which means they have, in the majority of cases, been used, and are at least 50 to 75, and even more than 100 years old. Having said that, I do not sell items that are so used that they are obviously heavily worn, faded or too fragile to use. Almost all my items were made by hand in France during the first half of the last century–most would date from between 1890 and 1950, although it is quite difficult to be certain of an exact date in most cases. It would be quite unusual to find this kind of fine hand work in France after about 1960. Again because these items are Vintage they have, in the vast majority of cases, been used. Still it is inevitable that occasionally there may be a hardly noticable tiny pin dot stain or a tiny rend on any given item. I always carefully launder and iron my items and in doing so inspect them carefully for a second time. If I notice a small flaw on an item I put that in my description. It is my hope that my customers understand that I would not and do not sell items which are not clean or have evident large stains or tears. But please do understand that because the items I sell are Vintage, and usually are at least 50 to 75 years old, they are rarely absolutely “pristine and perfect” as if they were new. Like all fine antiques, they will have their own sort of patina. Some sellers do sell these vintage items in the state in which they find them and of course they inform their customers of that fact. Because the items I sell are generally much sought after here in France and abroad, they are becoming more rare, and certainly more difficult to find. I travel far and wide in my region of France to visit flea markets, brocantes, antique shops and private sellers. I visit Paris from time to time, and I search for these rare items in other areas of France when possible. My travel costs to seek out new items are significant. Finally and very importantly for my customers, I spend a great deal of time laundering and ironing the items we sell. This always involves lots of energy and time and often requires specialized laundry products which can be costly. For all these reasons, the prices of these vintage items may seem a bit high–but the fact is that almost all these items are rare and special. Many are virtual works of art, (some are actually of museum quality), having been made entirely by hand by highly skilled, but sadly now unknown, seamstresses and embroiderers. These skilled craftswomen have all but entirely disappeared. This kind of French hand work is virtually a Lost Art. Still I do my best to keep my prices as reasonable as possible because it really is a great pleasure to package something very beautiful and very special and send it off to someone who will appreciate a lovely European Treasure From the Past.

500 Year Old Map, France Ortelius

500 Year Old Map, France Ortelius

500 Year Old Map, France Ortelius

500 Year Old Map, France Ortelius

A map from the actual FIRST MODERN ATLAS, or Atlas series, published in the 1570s by Abraham Ortelius. The atlas is titled “Theatrum Orbis Terrarum” and it was the most expensive book ever published up to that time period. The atlas was so popular that many editions were published in the subsequent 30 years. So, owning this would mean you own 1/900 AND. Owning a piece of cartographic history. Even better, this particular map was not part of the later editions and historians claim only about 4000 of these maps were produced which means that this map is closer to only P. 1/450 in existence today. I have been trying to do research to determine if this particular map is from the first edition of the atlas in 1570 or one of the editions in the years following…. And I know it is an edition after 1570 but before 1598. The map itself is from the 11th plate in the atlas and is titled. Saint-Quentin in northern France and vicinity. The map is in color and written in Latin. Note that this is only the map depicted. The size of the actual map together is about 13″ x 9″ (33cm x 22cm). OWN CARTOGRAPHIC HISTORY WITH THIS NEARLY 1/2 MILLENIUM AGED MAP. The last photo is just an example of an Ortelius Atlas Open in a library. BEST OFFER Available – ALL Reasonable Offers Considered.
