Using seamless USGS topographic data, we're able to create home decor featuring maps of your most meaningful places. Provide any U.S. address and artisans in New England will create a clock on cork-backed, rustic tumbled marble-that reproduces a map of your location.


The map will show topographical information covering nine square miles including your chosen location, with some main streets and major landmarks. A small compass rose will indicate your chosen location and the address you provide will be featured on the personalized map legend. See the images above for examples of maps featuring both rural and suburban areas. Comes ready to hang, or use our forged-steel easel (sold separately) to display the clock as a desk accessory.


Please note: Personalized items cannot be returned unless damaged or defective. Please check your order carefully; once placed, your order for this item cannot be canceled. Not available for shipment outside of the U.S. Please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery to the continental U.S. and 4-6 weeks for delivery to Alaska and Hawaii.


One AA battery, not included. 8" square.


What are topographical maps? Topographical maps display land features such as elevation, roads, water, mountains, and some significant landmarks. Town and county names are sometimes shown. Streets are sometimes labeled.


How old are the maps? Our maps were originally drawn as long ago as 1890 and may have been updated many times since. Each map has been updated at least as recently as 2008.


Why isn’t a specific street shown on my map? Cartography is the delicate balance between aesthetics and the need to convey huge amounts of information. The level of detail is dependent on the location and elevation, just as it is with online map services.


Why do you need a postal address? We create a 9-mile-square map with your chosen address just off center. We also type this address in the map legend. Please double-check the spelling! We do catch and fix most errors, but your help is much appreciated.


My map is off by a few miles or many miles! On rare occasions our mapping software does not recognize a location. This is more likely to happen in rural areas—you may have had similar experiences with online mapping services. If we do accidentally handcraft an incorrect map, we will work with you to determine the coordinates (latitude and longitude) of your location and create a new map for you using that data.


Why is my map so busy/so sparse? The charm of this product is that we use real maps, which are unique to every address. A map of New York City (population more than 8 million) will include many streets and alleys. A map of Box Elder, Montana (population just under 800), will be the exact opposite.


Our rustic tiles are carved from large marble blocks, ensuring that no two stones will ever be exactly alike. Then the pieces are tumbled to give them character that can be seen on every surface, edge, and corner. The result is a one-of-a-kind keepsake with more personality that would be possible from a piece of manufactured ceramic. Please see additional images for an example of a tumbled marble tile.

    The clock is great looking but did not display the requested street, though it exists on many maps and is bigger, more significant than very small streets shown. A major disappointment. Accompanying print completely misrepresents the if and why certain street names may not appear.

                  We purchased these clocks for our bosses.
                  They absolutely loved the idea of their hometown maps. We are remodeling our office and they can't wait to put them on their new desks.

                              I wanted the clock to depict an island, and what got zeroed in on was my address, so it was completely distorted from what I wanted to accomplish with this gift. I called in and was told I didn't read the fine print and there is a limitation on the area available (something like a 9 mile radius?). I had asked for a proof before the final product was shipped and I never received one. This mishap could have been avoided if a proof was available. I called customer service and while I wasn't able to return the item, they gave me store credit for the purchase price. In a perfect world, I would rather have the clock with the zoom I requested.

                                    We live at a lake during the summer and this is a great conversational piece for our guests. Very unique showing where our home is along with dots where other homes are around the lake. Also shows the depth of the lake and other landmarks. Very nicely done.

                                    The quality of the stone and the way the map is screened onto the stone is great. It's a little bigger than it appears in the photo (I should have paid attention to the stated size) and is probably better on a wall than an easel but over all I'm very pleased. I order several different mapped locations.

                                        I bought this for my husbands birthday. He loved it! I used his business address in Chicago for the map. Everyone in the office had to check the clock out. Just one AAA battery and with the perfect size it goes anywhere! Only thing I noticed was that the area is very congested so in some areas difficult to read. However that said we still really loved the whole idea. NG is a great gift idea source! I will be ordering more for family and friends. Very reasonable price for a very unique gift. I ordered the stand and it is a perfect fit and sturdy as well!
