Transylvania map box / framed map

Featuring the Transfagarasan Highway, the second highest road in the world, there’s more to Transylvania than castles – although there’s no shortage of those… and fortified churches, the Saxon Germans building many when they migrated south. On the other hand horse-drawn carts are the most likely sight along its roads. The area also hosts 40% of Europe’s bear population throughout its sprawling hardwood forests and is steeped in myth, culture and history.

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.

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.

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 Erdely in Transylvania. It is a Cartographia map and is a modern edition.

The perfect gift for a wedding or birthday, featuring an area, city or country that they love!

Dimensions in cm: 43W x 28H x 9.5D


Available on back-order

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.

    I just love my map box … it reminds me of every road we cycled along, of every village we travelled through, on our holiday last year. It’s the perfect place to hang my car keys!
