This Allegorical Plaque is very old...we date it as around 1850-1860. It is made in white metal with a copper coating to front and is Oval in shape measuring 6 1/2" x 5" in size. The depiction is of an Angel carrying young babies to Heaven accompanied by The Holy Spirit in the form of a Bird. Fashioned in the repousse method it really is a beautiful piece. We think that originally it would have had either a backing with hanging eyelet on it, or it would been mounted on a base of marble or stone.
