    Appreciate any help to identify a recent find. Heavy brass pedestal plate has "23 Fevrier 1895" (French translation 23 February 1895) inscribed under a medallion featuring a woman in Greek or Roman attire. Measures 11 5/8" in diameter. 4" high (pedestal base to top lip of bowl). The number 509 and the letters B.D appear on bottom of pedestal. Last pic shows piece upside down to show pedestal. Still mystery. Thanks, Pop

      Trying once more to ID brass compote, presentation piece? Also, is medallion centerpiece Greco/Roman Lady identifiable to anyone? Could be a start. Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving. Be safe. Thanks, Pop.
