Fine full color example of Hondius' scarce map of the Ecclesiastical State, the region directly ruled and controlled by the Vatican at the beginning of the 17th Century. Includes a title cartouche, dedication held aloft by cherubs, scale of miles and sailing ships. Date: Amsterdam / 1630 ca. Map Maker: Henricus Hondius. The Map measures 16.5 x 21 inches and the hand made frame measures 24.75 x 28.5 x 2.75 inches. The custom frame is wonderful. It has designs inlaid into all for corners. No tears or repairs.
I got a chair from my grandmother with carved dragons on it. After searching everywhere, I found the same chair on your website. I thought it looked Asian, but had no idea how valuable it is! I almost sold it to a friend for a hundred bucks. I am so glad I used your site to learn how much it's worth! Your price guide is such a great tool! Thanks Again!!
