This is a striking and detailed promotional wall map made for the A.J. Harter piano company of Altoona, PA. The large top panel advertising the pianos they exclusively carry, with a fine illustration of the Florentine Grand piano of the Ivers & Pond Piano Company at center. The lower panel illustrates six pianos. A long list gives 27 specifications for these "High Grade Pianos" with pricing from $175 to $1,000. The map of Pennsylvania is highly detailed and beautifully colored by county. A portion of the verso is an index to counties and towns. An uncommon advertising map.
Bright coloring with top and bottom metal strips and red piping at sides intact. The original brass hanging rings are intact. A little creasing visible in blank area at top, still fine.
