Starting in the late 1940s Virginia Metalcrafters commissioned renowned sculptor Oskar Hansen to create a "Botanical Series". Natural materials - mostly leaves - were collected, moulded, and then cast in sold brass.
This circa 1948 poinsettia leaf dish is the perfect tribute to the holidays.. Bottom features VCM "Betty" mark and "3-44" mold mark.
Measures 6.25" long x 4.75" wide x .50" high.
In very good vintage condition - this piece has not been polished by C+V HOME. In current condition we see NO substantial scratches, marks, or corrosion of note. However as with any brass item of this vintage there is a natural patina which includes slight and subtle bits of tarnish, verdigris, and pitting. See photos for details.
Be sure to check out several other solid brass leaf dishes from this series in our Chairish shop.
