The map-themed coasters and clock start with marble sourced from Turkey. Stones are carved from large blocks and then tumbled to give each its own unique personality and to let natural characteristics shine through. Back in Rhode Island, the map of your handpicked location in the United States (and the nine mile-surrounding area) is applied. A compass rose marks the spot, and the map’s legend can be customized, too.
We like that the pieces are all functional as well as commemorative. The serving tray is crafted from Indian mango wood and the marble clock and coasters both come with a cast iron stand. Each of these is a lovely way to remember a special place, or can make for a meaningful personalized gift, too.
