This handsome c1900 Art Nouveau/Arts & Crafts plaque measures 17.5" high by 12" across by three-ply thickness. It was produced by the Flemish Art Company in New York at the turn of the last century. It is a nice early plaque, with a gorgeous deeply carved image of a pretty Art Nouveau/Arts & Crafts Maiden feeding a Horse. There is a title ribbon which reads 'Thoroughbreds'. This plaque is adorned with rhinestone jewels on the horse's tack, orange gems and larger rhinestones, with two of the orange gems lost long ago. The carving is framed by a motif of intricate squares and lines, rather masculine and fitting to the style. The original patina is a beautiful deep and rich brown. It is marked on the backside with the Flemish Art logo and the shape number 881. It has an ornate metal tab at the top for hanging. It is in original condition, with the usual no harm natural wood grain lines, and the two aforementioned missing gems. It does not affect the integrity of the plaque in the least, having just normal wear from being a ripe old age of 100+ years. This vintage plaque makes a very rich Art Nouveau/Arts & Crafts presentation.
