Newton School brass dish
A small brass dish made by the Newton School of Metal Workers, circa 1900.
This particular design appears in the Newton School design archive . The designer is unknown although it is most likely John Williams. The symmetrical design has exotic birds amongst foliage. The dish has a “pie crust” rim which is commonly used by the School.
The dish demonstrates the variety of the designs made by the School and the different style of repousse work and background hammer finish.
This piece is beautifully made in quite heavy gauge of brass.
Dimensions: 7 3/4″ in diameter by 1/2″ deep
Condition: Good. Recently polished. Some very light scratches
