ANTIQUE VICTORIAN Religious Wall Plaque - Flue Cover, Glass, Brass, Madonna and Child

Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….

AGE: C.1890 or so

ITEM: Most likely from the Netherlands, here's a very old religious wall decoration - what we might call a flue cover - showing Their Royal HIghnesses Archduke Albert and Isabella of Austria kneeling before a statue of the Madonna and Child. The frame of the cover is made of a brssy tin (I think) and the image is printed and is under glass. The original back cardboard is still in place and there is a hook for hanging.

CONDITION: Very nice front with no chips, cracks, etc. to the glass. Brassy tin is aged as it should be. The back paper has age discoloration and wear - something normal for about 118 years of age!

METAL CONTENT: Brassy tin?

SIZE: 3-3/4" wide x 5" high

FINAL COMMENTS: Albert VII (German: Albrecht VII) (13 November 1559 – 13 July 1621) was the ruling Archduke of Austria for a few months in 1619 and, jointly with his wife, Isabella Clara Eugenia, sovereign of the Habsburg Netherlands between 1598 and 1621. Prior to this, he had been a cardinal, archbishop of Toledo, viceroy of Portugal and Governor General of the Habsburg Netherlands. The Archdukes Albert and Isabella enjoy a well merited reputation as patrons of the arts. They are probably best remembered for the appointment of Peter Paul Rubens as their court painter in 1609. They likewise gave commissions to outstanding painters such as Frans Pourbus the Younger, Otto van Veen and Jan Brueghel the Elder.
