MODERNIST SET of THREE GRADUATED SM. BRASS TOOLED & HAMMERED WALL PERSONIFIED SUN PLAQUES. W/FACES & HANGING WIRES (INDIA). This outstanding set of three period Modernist Indian brass sun embossed and 3-dimensional wall decor plaques, with faces, have their original brass patina and have been unmolested and untouched.
The finish is original and they fortunately were not'improved' with brass chemical cleaner or other solvents. The finish is as how it should be for period brass. The metal itself on all pieces, doesn't suffer from a single push, ding, dent or abrasion. These 3 graduated in size brass plaques were literally taken off nails from a wall in a Mid-Century home, taken back to the ranch and are now being offered for sale. It would be difficult to ask for them to come in any better vintage and original, untouched condition than this set of three is now.The spiked, cut'fins' of the sun's rays on all pieces are without bends, or creases. The tooled, pressed, pin-hammered faces have that iconic stylized Modernist iconography, we have all come to quickly and easily recognize, giving human personification to the sun, universally celebrated and which gives us all life and sustenance.
These are great mid-20th century artifacts, authentic and 100% original. They were most likely realized in the late 1950's to early 1960's, giving them Modernist'Hollywood Regency' pedigree. Lg: 12" Diameter , Med: 9" Diameter, Sm: 6 Diameter.
Very Good/Excellent overall vintage condition. All pieces are in glorious, original condition and with their original patina. There's only a minor'scuff' on the larger one near the forehead and they don' t suffer from a single push, dent, ding or other abuse. Please scroll down the page to view enlarged photos below.
