Vintage Map find

A little Christmas break first.

I had this map on my newly updated Tween son's bedroom...


It sort of felt out of place on this huge wall and I thought that it will do for the ORC reveal until I find one that I & my son will really like. Fortunately I did…


Super cool
Isn't it great?! I love the colors and the detail and the fact that it's SOOO BIG!

Colors are beautiful

It's pasted on linen...
When folded it looks like this...

Do you guys have any idea where it's from? Where it's used? The Antique dealer told me a lady from Sweden sold a whole bunch of it to him

The best part was, it was so easy to hang! 

Just used push pins
How about you, any great finds lately? Do share.

Have a Wonderful Day!
