Each Brass Rubbing is a hand made original. A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE ORIGINS AND ART OF BRASS RUBBINGS THESE RUBBING'S REPRESENT ART HISTORY, DURING THE MEDIEVAL PERIODMonumental Brasses were crafted by silversmiths and stonemasons during the Middle Ages, and became the height of fashion in Europe between 1280-1650. They were 'pictures' of actual people, andshow the customs,etc.of the period. To make a rubbing we stretch rag paper over the engraved plate, & use metallic waxcompound'sto rub the image.This is a hand made rubbing of Sir William Fitzralph, created with metallic gold andsilver, and redwaxcompounds on a special black rag paper. This is a large rubbing 36" high X 15" wide. Sir William's original brass is dated 1323 and can be found in Pebmarsh in the County of Essex in England. Several hundreds of these monumental 'brasses' adorned the churches throughout England, but religious purges in the 1500's and 1600's destroyed or damaged many. It was the custom in medieval England for those who could afford it, to have brass plaques engraved to their memory. These were often tomb markers and portraits and were laid on the floor or walls of the local church. This rubbing of Sir William, shows the first introduction of plate armour after the purely mail armour previously used and is said to be one of the few, very fine and very early military brasses.I will send this rubbing to you in a strong postal tube, together with a copy of the Historical Notes, published by The London Brass RubbingCentre, which not only details the dates and place of origin of this rubbing but also all those wonderful facsimilie plates exhibited by the Centre.Rubbings like this were part of the exhibition of rubbings displayed by The London Brass Rubbing Centre at The Washington National Cathedral in Washington DC. Rubbings, hand made by one oftheir mastercraft instructors, make unusual and interesting gifts. It can be hung either from wooden dowels or matted and framed under glass.
