2 miniature Indian white metal plaques or pin trays, embossed hut scenes.
Pair of miniature Indian white metal plaques. The oval plaques have lovely embossed scenes of huts and trees to the centre, surrounded by a lace-like pierced floral rim.
The plaques have wire in place for hanging but they would also make superb card trays or pin trays, albeit they are in different sizes.
The plaques have the look, lustre and silky feel of a high quality silver (although they are un-hallmarked and therefore can only be confirmed as white metal). Total weight is 67g. Dimensions are as follows:
Tray 1 - 12 cm x 9 cm (4.75 inches x 3.5 inches
Tray 2 - 10 cm x 7.5 cm ( 4 inches x 3 inches.
There are no markings to the plaques. Date is estimated to be the early decades of the 20th century.
Condition is good.No splits or holes to the repousse work. Some slight curling to the fine fretwork edges but not obvious due to the high level of decoration. Otherwise just minor surface scratches to be expected of a vintage item.
This item will be dispatched by signed and tracked postage due to its high value.
