This is a rare cast Bronze plaque by the Metallic Compression Casting co. of Boston Ma.This co. was the 1st to make bronze hardware for buildings. Some of their door knobs have sold for over $4000.00.They started in the 1870's. I believe this plaque is from the 1870's or 80's. The quality is fantastic with very crisp detail. I presume this was some form of show piece or a advertising piece. Condition is excellent with a nice deep brown patina.Size is 11 by 8 3/4 inches
