Object Detail


Brief Description
Commemorative plate, issued to celebrate W.G. Grace's century of centuries. The plate is circular in shape, with undulating edges, and has a white background with blue rim and gold decoration. A roundel in the centre contains a facsimile of Grace's signature and the year 1895. This is surrounded by a design of radiating stumps and cricket bats, each printed with the name of the opposition and the score. The outer border features a pattern of flowers, bails and cricket balls. The plate is housed in a square wooden frame containing brown velvet. A series of names, including Grace, are on the reverse surrounding a rectangle, seemingly a table setting.
