Arts & Crafts Fish Plaque

Arts & Crafts Brass Fish Plaque c1900 – stock #60217

A fine and original arts and crafts brass wall plate decorated with a freize of swimming fish. Most likely dating to c1900/1910.

I have not been able to find any signatures or monorams to identify the artisan who made it. The hopeful looking fish are a typical motif associated with the artist John Pearson and followers.
