This figure of Shakespeare appears to be a silver plated bookmark. The flat piece of metal is die cut with stamped or engraved detail. It shows The Bard with a scroll in his hands and a couple of scrolls tucked under his left arm. There is a very fine cut, ¾ of the way around from the center of his chest to the middle of his arm. It is made so this can be slipped over a book page. It is almost unnoticeable from the front, you can see it better from the back. There are no markings on the back but I believe this is probably from the late 1800’s or early 1900’s. It’s a fun gift for the lover of old poetry.
It measures about 4 5/16” long and is in good condition with minor wear. The plating is worn from some areas along the edge so there is discoloring and a bit of rust. I have only lightly polished this so as not to reduced the detail.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
