This is a wonderful period Deco/ Nouveau brass plate (possibly an ashtray originally) that works either as a wonderful centerpiece or fruit bowl, It has a kneeling nude figure in a quintessential period pose in the middle. The figure is made of some metal other than brass and has an authentic, aged pewter-like finish. The top side of the plate shows some minor age spots, but we have not attempted to clean them, we will leave that for the new buyer. The bottom has a greenish gold tint with a pattern. This is a very heavy, substantial piece with a beautiful patina.
This piece is 12 inches across. The female figure is 3 inches tall.
The bottom is marked with "R120".
