Code 415-92 Impressive Bronze Plaque of a Classical Scene, 19th Century
This large, impressive patinated bronze plaque has been cast in high relief and patinated to a rich brown color. The scene is classical depicting two important characters presiding over a swearing in ceremony of sorts. They are in a makeshift room outside with drapes suspended from a large tree shown at the left side. Varying pieces of furniture from antiquity are placed throughout the area. The thick framework of this bronze plaque shows a course texture to the back edges, as though it had been embedded into a stone wall.
This is a magnificent and unusual bronze plaque that will be a topic of conversation wherever it is placed.
CONDITION: Minor old cracks, rubs and surface grime.
