Sicily map box / framed map
Surrounded by the Med, Tyrrhenian and Ionain seas Sicilia is a mountainous island famous for its arancini, Etna, lemons and granita. Archimedes came from the delightful town of Syracuse and the island boasts cultural highlights of the temples of Agrigento and wonderful mosaics of the Monreale church in Palermo – made with over 2 tons of gold!
Carefully and professionally crafted from American black walnut in our workshop by the Thames, the maps are cut to perfectly fit the back and sides of the box, giving an additional depth to the region and topography featured.
Map boxes are a stylish addition to any wall; their colour, detail and vintage charm is brought to life thanks to the unique way they are framed.
They also double as a shelf for keys or sunglasses, making them ideal to use as a tidy in the hallway or living room.
This map box is of Sicily, including the Aeolian islands. It is a modern Michelin map, number 565, and is from c. 2007.
The perfect gift for a wedding or birthday, featuring an area, city or country that they love!
Dimensions in cm: 60.5W x 40.5H x 9.5D
£115.00 – £118.00
Please note: whilst these boxes are fresh out of the workshop, some of the maps they feature are vintage and most are decades old, one or two even a century! Their condition is used. Part of their charm lies in the creases of the repeated folds, an errant stain from a picnic or even the odd note or mark added to highlight a route or destination.
Your map box comes ready to be hung from a slotted picture plate hanger (included). They only weigh a few kilos and will happily hang from a picture pin, nail or small screw.
We also make map boxes to order!
Please get in touch to order a bespoke box featuring… the area you grew up, where you honeymooned, your dream trip, or perhaps your loved one’s favourite cycle route! The possibilities are endless and sure to provide a talking point with guests.
