Up for bid: 30 x 20 License Plate Map of USA on Steel Slab!

Every once in a blue moon, I offer handmade original pieces to the highest bidder on eBay. Why? The reasons are twofold: I enjoy keeping track of the bidding action, and it often allows folks to pick up a piece for themselves at a steep discount. Today, I've done it again.


This map is in stock and ready to ship now! You will get the actual one pictured, as opposed to most of my other listings where the pieces are made to order.

The lower 48 states are represented by vintage license plates cut with precise detail by hand and assembled together like a jigsaw puzzle.

This 30" x 20" license plate map of the United States is stunning and mounted on a 3/4" deep wrapped canvas made of dull 24 gauge industrial steel. Comes ready to hang using solid D-ring hooks.


Please note the steel sheet canvas has some minor natural imperfections including scratches, smudges, and dents due to the recycled handmade nature of the piece. These are all perceptible to varying degree in some lighting and from some angles.


An instant conversation piece and a lifetime of enjoyment in any home or office.

Check it out and place your bid here!
