Oak Framed Wall Plaque of Mercury
Metal – possibly pewter- wall plaque with a selective silvered finish, depicting the mythical Roman god Mercury, son of Jupiter, flying towards the sun.
Naked apart from his winged helmet, and holding forward in his right hand a staff, correctly known as a caduceus, which is a symbol of peace.
Affixed inside its original grooved and dark stained Oak frame, this is a stunning little plaque with a pleasing old patina.
Monogrammed in the top left corner either WO or OW and dated 1909, the overall size is a little over 27 cm wide by just over 17 cm high.
