I recently aquired this metal plate...

It's an Art Nouveau metal plate made in honor of the Hindenburg Zeppeling. From the style I'm guessing its from the early XXth century.

On the bottom of the plate you can see a submarine emerging and in the top a Zeppeling soaring in the skies. A city (with a church) the is also shown with a few boats on the water.

In the back you can see a number "91" embossed in it. Also on the back, there is a small embossed diamond-shaped logo with the letters WMF (The F might also be an R; its REALLY small); this is located on the top.

As soon as I get more info about it I'll post it here for you to enjoy.
