Patinated Galleon Plaque*
Dark patinated circular brass, or maybe even bronze, wall plaque depicting a galleon under sail on the high seas.
The wind-filled mainsail sports a large and ornate cross, and two long pennons stream from the top of the mast, just above the crow’s nest. The other two flags also bear crosses, and shields are slung from the side. It looks to all intents and purposes as though it’s sailing into battle during one of the Wars of the Crusades.
This is a very nicely detailed plaque made from a good, heavy guage and has a small length of chain at the back with a ring for hanging.
The diameter is approximately 22.5 cm. Arts & Crafts around 1910.
