Nice bas-relief bronze wall plaque depicting a profile of the great German poet Friedrich Schiller (1759-1805). Most likely commissioned ca. 1905 for the 100th Anniversary of the death of Schiller. Signed in cast with artist’s initials that look to me to be “MJ”. Measures 7in height x 5.75in width. Condition: a few minor surface scratches, a little dull could be polished up but I don’t want to disturb the old patina that may appeal to some buyers.
Fine & fun material culture that inspires
