Dutch, 1525-50

Brass. Embossed with a rare grape and vine design surrounding a Tudor rose. The grape and vine was symbolic of the infinite love of God and the abundance He provides. Perhaps aimed at the English market to give "best wishes" to the new Tudor dynasty! Owner's intitials SL on rim. Softly defined as a result of centuries of polishing. Iron strap for hanging. Dings and dents; three stable, immoveable splits on rim. No restoration.

14-3/4" diam.
