This hand-formed and hand-beaten brass dish was found in England, made during the Arts and Crafts era, probably by a guild craftsman. It has a trefoil shape with deeply scalloped edges, lovely raised flowers with entwining foliage, and a rather curious raised forearm clutching a leafy branch in the center. Possibly from a family crest although I would expect more symbols than just the one. The dish measures 7-3/4 inches in diameter. It has the number 2605 and a partial maker's mark of H&H with an incomplete symbol. Dating circa 1890-1910.
