When I first acquired this dish, I was amazed at the stunning detail and knew that this piece told a story. It took me a long while to research and put together the various images within the piece and therefore find the provenance of this remarkable plate.
The various pictures depict moments in time and creates the story of the great city of Valencia in Spain.
This brass high relief dish has such extraordinary detail, that it is a pleasure to spend time inspecting and analysing the different images within the piece. One of the most interesting parts for me was the surrounding frame which depicts four bats with open wings.
The piece measures approx. 19.5 x 14.5 x 2cm. It is in excellent vintage condition, although could do with a clean to make it brighter although personally I like the patina. The back shows some darker colouring and age-related wear. It has four little feet which allows it to sit perfectly on a flat surface.
