I would love to get some feedback on this printing plate I picked up at a garage sale. It's for a version of Marcel Duchamp's "Rotorelief" prints - Cerceaux. Everything corresponds exactly to the original print, including a track mark at the outer border as well as the name - Cerceaux. The size is 20cm, which is the same as the original print, and it sits on a back panel made out of some kind of hardwood. But - the original print does not have the signature"Marcel Duchamp" as part of the plate, as this one does; could this indicate that it was used for a publication (eg book)? I am trying to find out everything I can about this plate, it is a truly intriguing piece, and though the plan is to get it professionally authenticated, I would be thrilled to get some more input. Included are photos of he plate as well as an original print of one of the editions, this print can be found at the Moderna Museet in Stockholm.
