With depth information and the outlines of hidden sandbars, nautical charts reveal safe passage to sailors. To the casual viewer, they evoke seaside memories and dreams of open water. Provide us with your favorite U.S. town or landmark that is located on the coastline of the Atlantic or Pacific (including Alaska and Hawaii) or the Great Lakes, and artisans in New England will create a cork-backed, rustic tumbled marble coaster set that reproduces a local chart.
Please note: To avoid errors and delays with your order, you must provide the name of a town or landmark that is located along a coastal waterway. 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. Allow 3-4 weeks for delivery to the continental U.S. and 4-6 weeks for delivery to Alaska and Hawaii.
What is a nautical chart? Nautical charts are graphic displays of an ocean coastal area. They show depths of water, features of the seabed, details of the coastline, navigational hazards, and approaches to land. Scale can vary greatly.
Can I order a nautical chart of any body of water? Nautical charts are created for ocean coastal areas, but we do have charts for many larger rivers and lakes too. We will suggest other options if we don’t have a chart that fits your request.
Why do you need me to specify the nearest town? The nearest town can guide us to your specific waterway if we have multiple options or the waterway name is the same in a few states. For example:
The Pacific Ocean and Lake Michigan are too large to capture on one nautical chart. By specifying La Jolla, CA, or Chicago, IL, for example, we can create a chart focusing on where those bodies of water meet those cities.
If you request “Cape Cod Bay,” we can picture whole bay (as shown in the images above) or we can zoom in on the coastal town of Wellfleet, MA, for example.
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.
