Repousse Victorian Figural Plate Woman & Child Antique Metalware


An exceptional Victorian Era footed antique plate done in repousse. It is crafted from brass with nickel plating. Period 1890-1900. The figures are a woman and child in Roman Gothic style dress (or little of it) graced with tall flowers and greenery around them. The border is done in heavy scroll and floral design. You can see the brass coming through the nickel plating in spots and some areas of light green oxidation from the nickel - We did not clean or polish it, only wiped down as we leave all pieces in their original "as found" condition. It measures 7" across and stands 3/4" on 4 small nobby feet. It is unsigned and a gorgeous period piece that can be hung or displayed on a plate stand. Great for Victorian - French Cottage - Gothic or even Art Nouveau decor. Mix it with your old and new treasures!
