This old solid bronze dish is embossed with a soldier (believed to be German from his uniform), guiding a woman in front of him. She's covering her mouth in reaction. When you turn the dish over, you can see why...his hand has pulled her dress up. Very naughty boy.
This risqué theme has been around for decades (under the guise of bawdy humor). There have been many reproductions and variations of this motif over the years. This is an early one from the WW1 era. This is solid bronze in a very smooth casting.
The dish / tray measures 4 inches across by 5 1/4 inches high. It's quite heavy and would make an excellent paperweight. Excellent vintage condition with beautiful unpolished patina.
