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.


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.

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.

Reviews

Very disappointed!

Purchased as a gift for a friend. Cannot ascertain accuracy of map as background color on the entire map is a very dark green therefore none of the black labels show against the very dark background. Strange as none of the pre-purchase examples/pictures provided were this very dark green color. There could not have been a quality inspection prior to mailing as anyone can ascertain none of the labels can be read. It was a great idea and I am extremely disappointed in the product.

Just make sure you know what is in the radius of the location you chose to highlight...i.e. sewer/water treatment plants will be included!

This product is very unique. You will not see it in any other catalog. I love that the map is accurate and shows the area where I live. I smile every time I look at it!

To our dismay, the map background was the wrong town in a neighboring county. To our delight, the customer service personnel immediately ordered a replacement, and it arrived within a week, with the correct map depicting our neighborhood.

My street/house is directly across from the Atlantic Ocean off A1A in Central Florida. Those of you who have driven this in the Daytona Beach area know how scenic it is. This creates a great backdrop for my specific version of the clock since it is mostly water. If you live in a more densely populated area away from any natural wonders such as water or mountains, this clock for you address probably won't be anything special.

I bought this for my son's birthday but it has ended up i the living room because it is so attractive. It's so attractive and the map was done so that both the Mississippi Sound (south of us)and Back Bay (north of us) are shown.

though they did have some main streets on the, the exact address was not.. if you read the fine print, maps were updated 2008. i'm pretty sure the address was there for at least 13 yrs, it did not have the subdivision I was wanting.. still unique, but not as good as I thought it would be

I bought one for some friends with a vacation home. It was a perfect combination of novelty and utility. They pored over the map and were greatly appreciative. After a week, they bought a new mechanism online because it had a second hand -- it was an easy upgrade.
