Maine

Inspired by her love of sailing, Maine-based maker Charlotte Guptill began to incorporate nautical charts directly into her jewelry designs. With the help of her husband, John, and a talented pack of Maine artisans, she handcrafts custom nautical chart and map adornments in her studio on the Portland waterfront. Each of her pieces is hand-cast, the chart or map images are hand cut, and each piece is topped with boaters resin to create a natural dome that magnifies the artwork below.

Handmade Made in the USA
Made from
lead-free pewter, boater's resin, Paper
Measurements
3.25" L x 3.25" W x 0.35" H
Care
Designed to patina slowly and evenly, developing a soft warm patina often considered an enhancement to appearance. If desired, apply and rub a mild detergent on pewter surface, rinse under running water and gently wipe dry with a soft cloth. The clear, high gloss surface is a durable, scratch and fade resistant boater's resin containing a U.V. protectant. If slightly scratched, buff with a soft cloth and car/boat wax.

Comments about UncommonGoods Custom Latitude Longitude Paperweight:

The item was attractive and nice for a paperweight, although it took multiple edits to get the text correct. Also, the insert with the coordinates and location was a cheap-looking printout which wasn't even glued in straight.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Custom Latitude Longitude Paperweight:

    It's a handsome, slightly rustic piece that my co-worker appreciated. It seems durable and the weight is substantial. The coordinates represent a very special place related to an organization that he has worked for and loved for 17 years.

    The compass is another special and memorable item that the recipient will cherish.
