Truly a very special one of a kind piece, this plaster piece is a plaque labeled "1615" and decorated with various scroll accents and other decorative details. Recently discovered in Bruges, Belgium and is the considered the original "master" for molds where pieces were made for churches and estates across Europe. The factory was forced to close during WWII's Nazi occupation and this is part of a collection of these plaster masters that were later discovered in the attic of the building. (This is where the term "masterpiece" originated).
Wear and cracks are in this piece due to the significant age of the piece but we do feel that it adds the character of this historic piece. Crafted of plaster, wood and burlap and some pieces include the metal rod for the mold.
Crating and very special attention to shipping is given with freight shipment of the piece.
Plaque alone measures 14" H x 17.5" W x 2.5" D.
Overall measurements with stand 15.5" H x 24" W x 6 D.
