We have a number of really great BRASS RUBBINGS that we are now listing. These were rubbed from brass tomb plates in a number of ancient English Churches in the 1960's and earlier. Many Churches in England have now banned the rubbing of brasses due to damage and wear problems so old quality brass rubbings have become very collectible. When you pause to consider the 'Rubbers' knelt for hours on stone floors in cold and damp Churches to do these rubbings, the unique and historical importance of the work, plus the wonderful decorative value of these, the prices they go for is really wonderful value for money. EMMA WODE was interred in 1431 at St. John Baptist Church in ERITH, KENT, and we believe this rubbing was done around the 1950's or possibly considerably earlier. It is a large and most impressive rubbing with the paper size being 37" x 30" and the actual image being 26.5 inches in height...imagine this matted and framed....it will make an outstanding & eye catching decorative piece.
