An antique Emperor Charles V brass relief plaque

Stock No.8696

A large antique circular embossed brass plaque, centred by the bust of Emperor Charles V (1500 - 1558 ) and surrounded by portrait medallions, putti and leaf scrolls. He was the Duke of Burgundy and ruler of the Netherlands from 1506, became the ruler of the Spanish Empire from 1516 and Holy Roman Emperor from 1519. He voluntarily stepped down from these and other positions by a series of abdications between 1554 and 1556. Through inheritance, he brought together under his rule extensive territories in central, western, and southern Europe, and the Spanish colonies in the Americas and Asia, the first to be described as "The empire on which the sun never sets".
French late 19th century.
