The City by the Bay, as it was in the 19th century, is shown in great detail on this map, that is embellished with gold leaf, a technique our skilled artists use to enhance already beautiful compositions and transform them into absolutely stunning pieces of art. This completely manual process involves sheets of real gold that are carefully applied to a selected portion of the artwork and then sealing the metal to protect it from tarnishing. The gilded area of the map is the water around the peninsula. This map is a perfect piece to showcase as a central point of the space.
At Vintage Print Gallery, we do our best to offer the most interesting, sophisticated and unique pieces of art to our loyal customers. While many of our offerings come from painstakingly collected antiques, such as hundreds of years old atlases, photo albums and herbariums, we have also gone a step further and now offer remastered pieces, as well as original art. Our original art takes inspiration from our existing catalog and builds on it. Our remastered pieces bring new colorways, sharper images and more intricate details from restored vintage works of art. Additionally, we also offer silver, gold and copper leaf enhanced art, with real metal applied to the prints.
