This map of California is striking and highly decorative and was taken from the Mitchell Atlas printed during the 1840s. It shows, in high detail, how the area looked at that time, when the first gold was discovered at Sutter’s Mill in Coloma, California, and when hundreds of thousands of people all over America and abroad flocked to the state to get their own nugget of prosperity.
This exquisite vintage high-quality giclee print will be wonderful wall decor in a study, living room, office or a waiting room. With calming yellow hues and historic town names, this map will not just be a decoration, but also a window into a determining moment in USA’s past, the Gold Rush era.
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.
