Bellona, the Roman goddess of war. Sometimes known as the twin sister or wife of Mars.

In her right hand, she holds a Victoriola, a small cult statute of Victory, in heavy bas relief. Signed bottom left F Schön...
But as yet no information on the artist. The plaque is in good condition and totally original, with a later oak frame.The plaque was originally mounted/framed on something as there are four holes in the corners. Has a great aged patina with a light green verdigris in places that can only be obtained through many decades.
Rubbing, copper showing on some highlighted areas as shown, tarnishing, light scratches, odd dink etc.... All nothing major, but noted and does not detract from this very fine work of art in anyway, as photos show. Has wear and tear commensurate with age and use. All photos are taken outside in good daylight (cloudy). Weighing around 1.579 kilos unwrapped.
Has some wear and tear commensurate with 140 plus years of age and use. A great addition to any collection.
