Circa: 1925 Country of Origin: Sweden Manufacturer: Pre War Swedish Import
This solid copper Arts and Crafts Christmas wall hanging plaque features a design of poinsettia flowers and bells with the word Julen and the year 1925. Julen is the Swedish word for Christmas. The round plate or plaque is 7 inches diameter and is signed with the initials E.A. At least I think the first letter is an E - the Arts and Crafts style lettering is hard to decipher. The embossed twisted rope rim has a few small dings, more noticeable from the back than the front. A wire hanger is soldered to the back. The copper is fairly thick and has a nice, substantial weight - it's not the tooling sheet type used for copper pictures in later years.
