Art Nouveau Pressed Copper Finger Plates Set 8 Original Antique circa 1900
A rare set of eight art nouveau pressed copper finger plates in original condition with limited polishing to some of them. They could be polished to a high sheen if so desired by removing the original lacquer, but they have been left in their original condition for the purchaser to decide on how to present them. These are genuine original antique finger plates dating from around 1900.
These very decorative and relatively rare set are generally rectangular in shape with a very Art Nouveau stylised tulip and leaf scroll to the top. The pattern is repeated at the base but with three stylised tulips. The centre has a raised oval cartouche with two stylised tulips to either side. The whole background has a hammered type finish.
Each finger plate or door push is 11 7/16 ( (29 cm ) high by 3 inches (7.6 cm ) wide and the depth is about 5/16 inches 0.7 cm). They weigh 1045 grammes unpacked. They are in excellent antique condition, they have a some very minor marks commensurate with age and use. They are made of pressed solid copper with a protective lacquer on them. They could be polished to a highly reflective sheen if so desired.
This is a great decorative and useful set of antique copper art nouveau door finger plates for a period home or to add to any metalware collection.
