This Vintage Stamped Brass Decorative Shield has the shape of a 15th century heraldic decorative shield. Around a domed four-sided indented center, there is an elaborate border with exploding swirls and lined scallops, abstract floral forms, recessed banner and echoes of an inverted heart. The shield measures 2.125" (54mm) high by 2.125" (54mm) wide at the top. Maker and exact age are unknown. This Vintage Stamped Brass Decorative Shield is in good condition with some small areas of dark discoloration on the front and larger area on the back. The domed center has some small surface dents. These imperfections add to the patina of age of the piece. Ideal for assemblages, jewelry or other art projects.
