Hand crafted with a rolled lip and extensive repousse and punchwork, this lovely, antique, 17th century alms plate depicts two gentlemen of the era, carrying what appears to be a giant strawberry or bunch of grapes, on a pole. It is further decorated by foliate details and an outer border of elongated ovals and small lozenges. Notice the original patina on the back of the piece. It is a wonderful addition to any brass collection and a decorative piece.
