Stunning arts and crafts era neoclassical plaque by British artist Walter Gilbert. Depicted is winged Khronos (Chronus) and Young Atlas or possibly the infant New Year holding up a zodiac sphere, or earth.

Walter Gilbert is a world renowned artist of the Arts and Crafts movement at the tournament of the century. He was known for his work and designs with the Bromsgrove Guild of which this plaque is a representation.

At about 4.75 inches tall and 2 inches wide, this plaque has 2 tabs on the reverse that would permit it to be affixed to a display. They are typically offered for sale unmounted as this one is when the do come to market.

This piece is polished bronze, with an unpolished back. There’s lots of fantastic small details throughout this piece including the starts above the large arched wings of Kronos, aka Father Time, the zodiac representations around the sphere banding the middle showing Leo the lion and Virgo the virgin, and the sunrise, sunset peaking out at the foot of the plaque on either side of Kronos’s draped robe.

Overall a stunning piece of work from the late 1800’s to early 1900s.
