#410251 ND (1912) Art Nouveau white porcelain bisque plaque by Felix Rasumny, Russian born, but educated and residing in France sculptor and medalist author of many medals and coins. This plaque is the same as bronze medal "GLORIA" by him, it depicts French Helmet Marianne with ".GLORIA." below and F. Rasumny to her left, I have seen a bronze medals offered described as an award for a shooting match with embossed inscription on verso ''Prix De Tir Offert Par M.M. Les Officiers Du 91''. I had never seen one like mine and have not found one offered on internet. Is this item a trial for a medal or simply a copy? I am offering you to decide. Considering potential reward, it may not be such a big gamble. 60 mm x 46 mm, AU
