Wonderful rare old Anglo Indian colonial repousse tray or plaque made with mixed metals (brass, copper and silver). I would date this from late 19 to early 20th century. It has a border with flowers and scrolls with stylized vines or leaves coming from raised flower pots and a beveled interior with another band of scrolls and stylized vines. The center shows a scene with a person on a boat with etched fish and lilies in the water a house in the background and a tree along with people one in bas relief copper, brass and 2 in silver. Quite the piece and in excellent vintage condition with some areas of oxidation, verdigris that will probably clean out with a small wire brush and a couple a very small indention on the boat. Some wear to back and oxidation too. Measures about 20 3/16" x 16 1/8" and about .75" tall when flat on a table. Unsigned that I can tell.
