Cornish Copper Shield*

Item Description

Impressive copper shield attributed to J & F Pool of Hayle, Cornwall.

Finished with a two-tone patination, the repoussé design of fishes and sea serpents standing out against a darker finely hammered background.

A large central fish, surrounded by a circular spiny backbone, is seen on the surface of the waves while six smaller fish and a sea serpent swim around the outside.  The edge is neatly beaded, following the shaped outline of the shield.

The two hooks for hanging could probably be carefully bent behind so as to be concealed from view if preferred.

A good size at 59 cm high by 55 wide, and a fine quality piece of Cornish Arts & Crafts copper work, dating from c. 1900-1905.

Ref: 12774
