Mid 19thC K.P.E.V Royal Prussian Railways Carriage Shield. This one is in very nice original condition, could do with a professional clean to show the cream colour brighter but I have left it as I got it to show originality. Has the Prussian eagle holding sceptre and ball in it's tallons (bit of paint damage through the ball)with a crown uppon it's head. There are chips around the edges and scuffs to the paint as can be seen in the pictures, the detail and gilding work on this is much finer than the later early 20thC versions. On the back it has hand scratched in Cöln, the phonetic way of writing Köln which is Cologne in Germany so most likely done by an English speaker noting where they got it.
There is pitting to the iron on the back as seen in the pictures.
Measures 25.5cm wide by 20cm high.
