Why invest in antique maps?
The beauty of old and rare maps can be enjoyed as well as the joy of investing in a valuable antique. Antique maps are among the most affordable, under-valued and attractive antiques that are readily available to the public. Many Asian maps have doubled their value over the last few years.
A visit to Bartele Gallery at the Mandarin Hotel feels like having the opportunity to gaze through these amazing windows into Asian history. The maps and prints on offer are all over a 100 years old and are sold with a certificate of authenticy.
