'Spanish art is appreciated much more than we thought it would be abroad. We really had no idea about the international market until we joined Catawiki.'

About Catawiki's Cartography auction

Cartography or map-making has been an essential skill for thousands of years. The earliest known maps were found in the Lascaux Caves in Southwest France; they date from 16500 BC and contain diagrams of the stars. An important advancement in the field of mapmaking and navigation was the invention of the marine chronometer in 1735 by John Harrison, this instrument solved a long-standing problem of determining the longitude or east-west position of a vessel at sea. Harrison’s solution was to invent a marine chronometer or clock, which enabled ships to calculate their east-west position, according to the time of day; Harrison’s invention was important to both navigation and cartography.

Catawiki’s cartography auctions include maps from around the world, in a wide range of colours, styles and designs. Notable lots to have sold in Catawiki’s cartography auctions include a 19th century Tellurion, which demonstrates the way in which day, night and the seasons are affected by the relationship between the Sun, Moon and Earth - this special object sold for £2,084. Whether you wish to sell an antique map of an entire country, or a city-map of the area in which you live, Catawiki’s cartography auctions are the ideal place to sell your special objects.
