Description

Strip of metal bent down at the ends. Narrow central rib raised from behind; edges thickened and slightly raised by hammering, with traces of file marks. Rectangular mounting slots (0.8 x 0.5 cm) cut out close to the ends. Uneven lt. to very dk. green patina, generally fairly smooth but granular in spots. Does this go wiith the furniture sheathing 67-39-87/104? Metal, preservation, and technique seem close.
