Flowers for Mom - IV


English Arts & Crafts Hand-Hammered and Pierced Copper Plate with Stylized Floral Center Motif (LEO Design)


For the mum with understated—and excellent—taste, here's something a little off the beaten path.  A flower, indeed, sits at the center of this English Arts & Crafts hammered copper plate.  Delicate peen work, precise piercing, and finely executed ribbing is surrounded by a gentle petaloid rim.  Add to this the handsome nut brown patina which only develops on copper over decades.  And, at center, is that precious little flower—shimmering ever so alluringly.  Click on the photo above to learn more about it.
