This plate is cast iron (weighing 1/2 pound) but is rubbed with a beautiful bronze coating. The pattern is from the Victorian era. We guess that this plate is pre-1900.
The pattern is elaborate and covers the entire plate. The design includes lace, leaves, ribbon, and flowers.
The back plate measures 8 3/4 inches long and 2 1/2 inches wide. The keyhole is 2 1/8 inches below the door knob hole.
This is a piece of art, and who says it has to be use on a door? Screws will be included.
