A vintage highly embossed (also known as relief work) silver tone metal wall plaque or platter (possibly coated metal or something like aluminium, although the weight of the platter belies this).
The wall plaque depicts Don Quixote astride his rearing horse, Rochinante, presumably tilting at windmills, with his squire or servant, Sancho Panza, behind (clutching his head). There is a windmill to the far left of the scene is slightly lower relief. The rim of the platter is embossed with shields, shells and what look like stylised leaves.
The plaque has been lightly cleaned only as we did not wish to disturb the patina/surface in view of the uncertainty re the composition of the metal, and it might benefit from further, more expert, cleaning.
The platter measures approximately 11.75in in diameter and the depth of the central recess is about 0.5in. There is a metal loop to the back of the platter so that it can be wall hung. Exact age unknown but probably date from the first part or middle of last century. Weighs just under 750g.
