Overview

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.

FAQs

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.


About Tumbled Marble

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.
