This auction is for a vintage pewter or tin (I'm not sure which it is) professionally framed wall plaque of DaVinci's Lord's Supper from Italy.

My father was a career Air Force pilot, and he bought this piece in Rome in the mid-1950's .... so, I can guarantee that it is over 50 years old.

Take a look at the pictures, but even they can't really do this piece justice; it is just beautiful, with exquisite detail. Please don't confuse this with some of the - ahem - "inexpensive" similar "imported" items that are sometimes listed ; this is a true collectible.

This is quite heavy (the wide, black frame is very well made). T ARE a few small spots, which look like "water spots" on the plaque itself. These are all visible in the photos, but do not detract at all from the beauty of this piece; I only mention them in the interest of "full disclosure." The piece measures 9" x 14".

My home is smoke free and pet free.

The listed shipping rate is for shipping within the continental United States ONLY . I will ship to Alaska, Hawaii, Canada or internationally, but you must e-mail me to make arrangements and obtain the cost first. (I can tell you that, because this item is heavy, shipping outside the U.S. will be expensive; probably at least $25, depending on the destination.)

Shipping insurance is optional, but if you don't purchase it I can't do much
