I picked this up today and am so curious to know what it is...
Is this what is referred to as 'Mexican Tin Art'?
It's very intricate and looks like the design has been sewn on, near perfect. It's not signed either. I just keep looking at it in wonder, looks as if it were done in white, yellow and rose gold. I know that's not it but it sure looks like it.
Would love some insight on it.
Thanks for your help.
**UPDATE~ I found out today that these plates are made in Turkey. Usually a family affair where each member has their job. One hammers and solders the hook to the back first, another then does the etching, another brushes on Silver, yes, that's real silver on there, and another paints on the enamel and coats it. There are other cities in Turkey that do this still.
I may not be able to get back right away to say thanks to all for the loves and comments, so I'll have to say it now so I don't come off as rude ;)
