Newton School brass dish
A copper dish or charger with a repeating fish pattern made by the Newton School of Metal Workers from a design attributed to John Williams, circa 1900.
The Newton School design archive has a number of very similar designs which were all produced by John Williams. This particular piece is very well worked and made of a good gauge of brass. The pattern is slightly more ornate than others I have seen and the edge has a continuous punched decoration which was sometimes used by the School.
Dimensions: 12 1/4″ in diameter and 1/2″ deep
Condition: Good. Recently polished
