These rare, antique Georgian carriage plaque medallions were hand crafted in repousse, then filled with lead, after which they were finished by hand tooling the details. Each displays a scrolling acanthus leaf border in a relaxed oval, with a large, lion rampant on the right and smaller one in a field to the left. Beautiful and truly unusual, these afford myriad decorative possibilities for modern use.
