YOU are bidding on a pair of Chinese brass plates. Theywere designed as a pair --one smaller than the other. Also they were designed to be hung as the pictures show fairly elaborate cross brackets and hook. The larger brass plate depicts a rooster (YEAR of the Rooster?) and is very finely detailed. Each etching into the brass is done meticulously. The other plate depicts a pheasant and it too shows fine detailed background floral and grassy scenes. These have been previously collected by a small auction shop on Brighton Avenue in Allston called What Once Was Antiques. Both Kristene and Rick recently closed their doors after fifteen years t and had previously worked independantly as antique collectors. These were set aside very early on when I was able to provide eBay service a digital cam and PC cafe...recently cut with the auction wizard format and essentially starting again too. Long time ebayer however. I will be glad to answer any questions and/or provide additional photos of brass plates. I am not entirely sure that they are just brass either for the patina on the back looks like bronze. A very light golden tone more towards a bronze than the sharper copper color. They are a great pair of ornamental plates . LARGE : 17" on the rooster and 14 1/2 on pheasant. Please see photo with measuring tape. Good LUCK bidding.
