This Antiqued Caribbean map is a nice quality print of antique style maps and charts, capturing an old world style but offering current geographical information. These maps are taken from original watercolor paintings. They are meticulously printed on quality parchment paper. The maps are excellent references and frame beautifully, enhancing the most discerning décor. The maps are printed on heavy, quality parchment paper.
I do lots of traveling around the Caribbean and always have my eyes open for nice gifts. We first saw these maps in Jamaica and had to get some for myself. They are very nice quality.

Maps are a long-time favorite of the Caribbean Trading Company! Maps not only place things geographically and locationally, but they also show the history of knowledge, and also what was important to people at the time. (or at least who was powerful at the time). It power lies in its visual nature – in a quick glance you can easily understand it.
