A vintage European hand carved wooden plaque from Seville, Spain. The plaque depicts a royalty scene of the Spanish monarchy during the 13th century, with King Alfonso X in the very center. He is wearing a crown, holding a sword, an orb and has two bishops by his side. Below is a motto that reads, DO & NO. This motto or phrase is associated with the Spanish saying, " no me ha dejado" or "you have not abandoned me." According to the legend, there was a struggle for the throne when King Alfonso X, the wise, was in power with his son, Sancho. Eventually, he was ousted by Sancho. Therefore, King Alfonso X left the Queen to live in Sevilla during his final years. He was loved by the people of Sevilla and, as a result, the motto became associated with Sevilla. The plaque is hand painted with strong red, green, blue and gold colors. On the back, it is stamped, Made in Spain and has a small paper label which reads, Villa. Part of the label is missing but it would read, Sevilla. It measures approx. 13" height, 9 1/4"length and 3/4" width. The condition of this item is very good. It has a metal hook on the back, so it would be great as a wall hanging. The date of this plaque would be the 1940's or 50's.
