19thC Judgment of Solomon Silver Gilt Plaque
A nice antique Plaque depicting the Biblical scene of the Judgment of Solomon. The story is from the Hebrew Bible in which King Solomon of Israel ruled between two women both claiming to be the mother of a child by tricking the parties into revealing their true feelings. The decision in the story omits any effort to identify the father, and labels both women as prostitutes. The Plaque is well detailed and includes a sleeping dog and Phoenix type Bird. It is silver gilt or silverplate on copper and the frame is ebonized wood. It measures 9 1/4" in diameter including the frame and is in very good overall condition. The only thing to note is minor wear to the silver, see photos. The Plaque would make an excellent addition to any antique decor.
