The Annunciation - A Good Early 16th Century Nuremberg Brass Bowl
Showing in good, crisp detail, Mary standing next to a lectern, listening to Gabriel delivering his announcement. Between them is a vase of flowers and the dove, the sign of peace, hovers over them.
The depth of the bowl, together with the steep sides, would suggest an early date - the first half of the 16th century.
Very good colour, weight and condition.
Nuremberg, circa 1520-40.
Diameter 10.5 inches (26.5 cm).
