This is a historic map of the cities of New York and Brooklyn, as they were in 1873, showing intricate street webs, as well as a portion of the Long Island City. It will be the perfect wall decor for anyone who absolutely adores The Capital of the World. This already beautiful piece of decor is further enhanced by silver leaf, a technique our skilled artists use to enhance compositions and transform them into absolutely stunning pieces of art. Thin leaves of real silver are carefully applied to paper and then sealed to protect against tarnishing, intensifying the visual impact of the work of art. Display this map prominently and see the full effect of mixed mediums, paper, ink and precious metal come to life!
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.
