French C.1890 Silverplate Religious Plaque - Virgin & Child with Lots of Lilies
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1890 or so
ITEM: From France, Napoleon III era, comes this silverplate (over brass it seems) religious plaque featuring either the Virgin & Child (both figures wear crowns so is possibly Infant of Prague) at the center OR Saint Anne and the Infant Mary (I honestly can't figure out which). The center figure is a gold overlay (vermeil) while the background is a blue bit of cardstock I added as the back interior of the disc had rusted a smidge. Surrounding the round is a great profusion of Lilies. The plaque has a ring at the back so that the piece can be hung on a wall.
CONDITION: Very nice with a nice patina of age. At the bottom of the piece, the brass metal is just peeking through. The center gold panel can be removed by lifting the tabs at the back. This way, the color of the back paper can be changed out if desired.
METAL CONTENT: Silverplate over brass it seems.
HALLMARKS: None that I can find.
SIZE: 4-3/4" x 3" aprox.
FINAL COMMENTS: A really decorative religious piece that is not too large, not too small and could possibly be repurposed into another design.
