This beautiful old copper repousse wall art plaque was made in England by Peerage. It's oval, measuring 15-1/2 by 11-3/4 inches. In the center is a scene of two birds in branches embossed in high relief, encircled by a wide border of morning glory flowers and leaves. The copper plaque is stabilized in the back with fiberboard. There's a metal hanger at the top. The center back has a carved mark reading Peerage Made In England.
The copper has a rich, dark patina. There are a few light spots, probably water spots. The bottom center edge has some verdigris, and there are a couple spots of what looks like sediment to one border leaf (picture 3, lower right corner). I did not attempt to clean the plaque - I think it's perfectly beautiful as it is. Please note: I've lightened one of the pictures to better show detail. The actual color is the darker shade.
