Folk Art.

Massive American Antique Plaster Demilune Bas-relief Wall Plaque with American Eagle & Shield and Bellflower design.

1920s-30s.

Plaster.

The gray plaster bas-relief wall plaque depicts a large American eagle and shield. It was originally made for a Pennsylvania bank building.

One can see an Art Deco influence in the design of the plaque. The plaque is made with plaster and horse hair - the latter can be seen on the reverse.
