1913 Belgium Red Porcelain Enamel Bike Bicycle Motorcycle Scooter License Plate Tag

#RL396

A wonderful one of a kind and rare 1913 numbered European / Belgian bike tag plate in red porcelain enamel. It served as a government issued license plate during the reign of Albert I 1875-1934, King of the Belgians and has a royal heraldic or armorial crest with crown at bottom. He reigned from 1909 until his death at age 58 in 1934 a mountaineering accident, and is important for his rule during World War I 1914–1918, when Belgium was occupied by the German Empire, and also for the Treaty of Versailles in 1919.

This is a scarce old porcelain enamel piece with a graphic red look and patina. Condition: The red enamel has imperfections, some chipping and rust wear to the non enameled metal area, as seen in photos. This 109 year old piece is in "as found" condition.
