Small uniformed relief bust left on broad expanse of "Wedgwood blue," anepigraphic but Washington medal collectors are sure to recognize this bust as the inspiration for several early medals of the first President, notable for its pointed, meticulous nose. The bust is modeled after an etching by Joseph Wright, numismatically famous for his 1792 Pattern Quarter Dollar, but also the son of famed wax modeller and revolutionary Patience Wright. Four chips on edge which are hidden when in its frame. The frame measures 105 mm x 141 mm (including top ornamentation) and is finely made of brass. The face has floral designs applied in the four corners, and blue enameled medallions (some of which are missing or have lost their enamel) on the beveled inside edge. The frame has been altered to hold the plague securely and is a perfect fit for the plaque, both in size and style. A fine display item.
