Antique Alabaster Plate, Italian Poet Dante Centrepiece.
Beautiful Alabaster plate, with central black-backed glass piece bearing applied alabaster relief of the poet Dante. The plate is finely etched with fruit and leaves pattern. It measures 18 cm diameter (7 inches). Probably dates late 19th to very early 20th century. Has an old paper stock ticket on the rear. There are two faults: firstly, the black-backed centre has some crackling to the paint behind the glass. Secondly, there is a piece of the rim missing (lower right hand side edge in the main image). So, priced to clear. Otherwise, very pretty, delicate-looking item.
