 Large 16th. Century Alms Dish


A good large 16th. Century Nuremburg brass alms dish with a stylized central flower boss surrounded by lettering and stamped decoration. There is slight roughness of the rim in one spot where is has obviously been dropped over the years. See new information recently published by Klaus Tiedemann in " Nuremberg Arms Dishes" which dates these dishes as 16th. century. 19" in diameter
