An extraordinary and, in our experience, unique example of a pin-prick map. Around 1800 various applications of creative and artistic activity were becoming fashionable including needlework tapestry samplers, creation of valentines, hand-drawn educational activities, board games and jigsaw puzzles. Their purpose primarily was as an educational but amusing pastime. One of the lesser seen activities was that of "pin-prick" artistry. Here the outline shape of England and Wales has been cut out of card and delicately pricked to show a design pattern from which one can identify the sea creature's eye, sleeve and folds of the garment and headwear - the whole finished with carefully drawn and painted face and arms of the figure shown. The overall design copies that cartographic design of artist James Gillray, known for his political caricatures, showing an old woman seated on a dolphin-like creature, alluding perhaps to British naval dominance of the period. Our example has been pasted onto a contemporary scrap-book leaf.
