Very vintage metal shield formerly part of a French flag holder found on municipal buildings. The tin plaque bears the tri-colors of the French flag, blue white and red with a large embossed golden RF representing “Republique Francaise” (French Republic). Entwined branches of Laurel, representing victory, and Oak, representing strength and fidelity, complete the grandiose décor.

The shield-shaped plaque measures 19½" x 14" across. It is complete with the wooden support for holding 5 flags as well as a triangular steel brace.Considering the condition of the wood, I'd have to conclude this flag holder hung indoors, which also helped preserve the vivid coloring on the tin, making this a REALLY fine example.

This hard -to-come by escutcheon plate has tons of vintage appeal left in it! It would lend an authentic French touch anywhere, inside or out!
