This is a hand rubbing of a memorial engraved plaque. Engraved images of prominent people, who lived in the Middle Ages, were set into the floor or wall of their local parish church as a memorial or grave marker. The original 'brass' of this knight can be found in Pebmarsh in Essex, England, and was one of the earliest engravings cast and is dated at 1323. The illustration shows the first introduction of plate armour.

This rubbing is from an exhibition of facsimilie plates exhibited at The Washington National Cathedral,in Washington DC, by The London Brass Rubbing Centre and has more recently been on a national tour of the USA.

The rubbing has been produced by using a black wax compound in over a special strong white rag paper.

The rubbing measures 36" X 15" and leaves sufficient room to mat and frame. I will mail it to you in a strong mailing tube and include a copy of The London Brass Rubbing Centre's Historical Notes so that you can have the historical background to this exciting piece of artwork. The booklet also lists and describes other memorial plates in the Centre's wonderful and unique collection.

This magnificent piece of artwork, if framed under glass, is likely to take your breath away. It can also be hung, like a tapestry, by using wooden dowels or a brass rod.

I will fully insure this rubbing during transit and you will receive a treasure that will last a lifetime.
