Elizabeth I and Sir Walter Raleigh Depicted on 2 Large 16 1/2 inch Brass Hanging Plaques Plates


Elizabeth I and Sir Walter Raleigh Depicted on 2 Large 16 1/2” Brass Hanging Plaques Plates

Pressed Brass Work: Sir Walter Raleigh Never Laid His Cloak before the Feet of Queen Elizabeth.

Seaman, courtier, explorer, poet, privateer, and soldier of fortune, Sir Walter Raleigh was unquestionably the hands-down favourite of Queen Elizabeth I, even though he was far from handsome, being endowed with a long face, a high forehead, and "pig eyes." Testament, fiction has it, to his gallantry and style can be seen in the well-known incident when Raleigh rescued the royal feet from getting wet and muddy in ‘a plashy place’ by sacrificing his plush velvet cloak.

These two 16 1/2” Diameter brass wall hanging plaques depict the event and the ensuing relationship.

Condition: partially cleaned and should if required clean up further. Ready to hang with brass loops attached to the reverse. Light weight.
