1777 Lotter New York & New Jersey
This superb reproduction of the original antique copperplate plate engraved “A Map of the Provinces of New-York and New-Jersey, with a part of Pennsylvania and the province of Quebec, from the topographical observations of C. J. Sauther”, was originally published by Matthew Albert Lotter in 1777, and is a fine example of late-18th century mapmaking. This is a rare map of the newly formed United States of America shortly after declaring independence from the British Crown in 1776. This English language map printed in Germany reflects the great interest European countries had in the outcome of American War of Independence.
What is a Mirrored Print & Gallery Wrap?

Hand-made Rattan Frames
Though the design has changed over the years, we commission these Rattan frames through a small family owned company in The Philippines. Your frame is the result of trial and error of the last 20 years! Rattan is a vine-like Palm that requires forest cover in order to thrive. Rattan grows throughout the jungle for over a quarter of a mile. Its trunk can span a diameter of over two inches down to the thickness of a human hair. The harvester’s collection process is performed by hand by a simple machete. Ultimately, the rattan vine cannot survive without the forest. Rattan quickly regenerates. As a result, this method of harvesting protects the destruction of the forest.
