Nuremberg, around 1450

The powerfully chased brass cymbal beater's bowl shows four shield-holding angels between humped petals.

Cymbal beater bowls were a sought-after product of the brass guild in Nuremberg and were valued as holy water and baptismal font bowls, as well as alms bowls.

They were sold throughout Europe via the known trade routes. Early works like this plate shown have survived very rarely.
