Lobster Trap Framed Florida Keys Lighthouses Chart



This beautiful chart shows the location of the nine remaining lighthouses of the Florida Keys along with reefs and water depth contours. A unique inset of the Marquesas Keys to the Dry Tortugas is also included as well as information about the infamous "Quicksands." Each Lighthouse is beautifully captured in a pen and ink drawing which includes a unique nautical scene. Interesting facts about the lighthouse are also presented.

Small Size Frame:  Print is 12" x 18", Frame is 15" x 21"

Regular Size Frame:  Print is 24" x 36", Frame is 30" x 42"  

The frames are made from real lobster trap wood that was used to harvest lobsters in the Florida Keys. After 5 or so seasons of using these traps, the hardware that holds them together starts to rust, and the lobstermen can no longer use them. The older traps are taken, broken down and the weathered wood is used to make the frames you see below. The original staples, nails, and other fasteners are left in the wood to keep it looking the same as when used as a working trap. The black rope that is sometimes added onto the frames is the actual pull rope that is tied to the bouys you see in the waters thoughout the keys.
