A very interesting and rare bronze plaque with Coat of Arms from the Spanish branch of the Habsburg Dynasty / Holy Roman Empire, mid 16th. century.

A wonderful patinated renaissance antique, showing the Coat of Arms Eagle and with names of all the provinces and possessions of the important Spanish part of the Holy Roman Empire. The piece is a round heavy bronze plaque with a long line of inscription all around the central eagle. Here's our take on the abbrivations: RE(G)IN FANS; HISPAN; ARCHIDE AVST; DVX; BVRGVN; MARCIO;MORA;ETC DVX; SLESIE; WIRTEMB; EC; COMES; HABS P; PLAND; TIROL. So rulers of a lot of places, incl. Spain, Tirol, Austria, Slesia in Poland; Flandern in the low countries etc...

Size: 13,5 cm. in diameter, ca. 340 grams.

Condition: Choice! Hole at the top for hanging, lovely warm brown patina.
