Plaque in the form of a stag with three birds' heads decorating its antlers and details in relief. The naturalistic rendering of the stag contrasts sharply with the stylized heads of the birds. There are several attachment loops on the reverse of each plaque. Reconstructed as part of numerous gold plaques decorating a shirt.
Purchased from the Anderson Galleries (Canessa Estate Sale), subscription of William Hinckle Smith, 1930
