Complete: ht. 9 3/8”; wd. 6 3/8”; ht. 1 1/8” (w/ font)
Plaque: ht. 2 ¼”; wd. 1 ¾”
Condition: A period piece, it is in very good original condition.
For accuracy: there is a handful of extremely light chipping to the extremities of the onyx as one would expect, and light expected gilt loss to the font from light use, else the colours are superb with no enamel loss and a natural rich patina.
