16th century North Italian "Pisan-style" backplate with flared ridged edges and a fine etched finish. Etchings include "mop & broom" designs such as parts from floral script patterns, figural heads, animals, and musical instruments all lined with rope patterned sunbeam borders. Interior of backplate shows repairs have been made to this item at some point in time, possibly from period.
Good. Finish to backplate has a nice grey-brown patina to background and crevices of etchings. Wear and dulling to etchings. Interior shows heavy oxidation and two repairs possibly made during time period of production.
