Lovely and highly collectible brass rhubarb leaf dish made by Virginia Metalcrafters in 1948. Rich detailed texture which replicates nature and the rhubarb leaf itself. This piece has a nice patina with a variety of colors from age. Bottom Markings: 3 - 34 Copyright 1948, rhubarb and VM mark. ( markings on back on very worn and hard to read - Virginia Metalcrafters mark is very faded, along with rhubarb letters and numbers on date.) I leave all vintage metal pieces as found, without polishing. Overall very charming old mid century piece!
Markings on back very worn/faded.
Brass bottom is very worn and faded.
Lots of patina, rust, tarnishing and aging on brass.
Overall does show 60+ year age.
Measurement: Approx 5" L x 1" H x 4" at widest
