Art Nouveau Pressed Brass Finger Plate Glasgow Roses Original Antique circa 1910
An art nouveau pressed brass finger plate in original polished condition. It is in a typical art nouveau style and is rectangular in shape with narrow hammered finished three section border to the top and bottom. The main body is embossed with a very typical art nouveau pattern of three straight line stems for stylised "Glasgow Roses" that are above a laurel wreath, all set onto a plain flat background. The design is very reminiscent of the style of Charles Rennie Mackintosh. The front at the base of the rose stem is stamped with the registered design number of 604745 which dates to about 1912.
The finger plate or door push is 10.98 inches (27.9 cm ) high by 3 1/32 inches ( 7.7 cm ) wide and the depth is about 1/8 inch (0.3 cm). It weighs 79 grammes unpacked. It is in excellent antique condition, it has some very minor marks commensurate with age and use. It is made of pressed solid brass sheet.
This is a great decorative and useful item of antique art nouveau brass, a door finger plate for a period home or to add to any metalware collection.
