Where the plaque received high praise and was described as'Tadema in silver'. This copy of the original shows a court surrounded by garlanded Ionic columns, vases of flowers etc a Pompeiian./Venus, just from the bath, reclines demi-nude on her couch, while. Handmaidens ties on her sandal, another binds her locks with a chain, and a third stand ready with a robe to shroud the still unveiled charms of her mistress, who seemingly surveys herself in a metal mirror. Good condition with no damage or repairs and with some rubbing to the high points. Evidence of copper coming through the silver plate on the most raised parts (please view photos). Has rubbing, tarnishing, light surface scratches etc.... All nothing major, but noted and all commensurate with age and use.
