Copper alloy with enamel

Mount. Cast oval plate, shaped to fit a curved surface, with a pair of fixing holes of diameter 3.1mm which were secured by bolts or rivets with heads circa 6mm wide. A cast design of a ragged saltire retains scraps of thick dark blue enamel on its cross arms, white enamel immediately adjacent to the arms, and with pale blue enamel apparently filling much of the field between the arms. The object may have been attached to machinery. Cursory survey has not identified an institutional user for this combination of colours, though a Scottish association is possible. Suggested date: Modern, 1900-1950.

Length: 33.6mm, Width: 27.2mm, Thickness: 1.2mm, Weight: 5.73gms.
