What a simply stunning piece of repousse work this is ! Take a look at the amazing detail work in the Roman scene....just beautiful.....done in copper with a brass rope rim decoration. The Plaque measures 12 1/4" in diameter and is in beautiful condition. The back is completed with a concave metal piece with a screw insert....not at all sure what this was for or how the dish /plaque was used originally....possible attached to a stand? This is definitely an old piece ....we would say Victorian or perhaps even earlier. Found in Devon, UK, earlier this year.
