2 rare antique LAUER signed miniature brass medal plaques of SCHUBERT and MOZART

This is a most unusual set of TWO brass placque medals signed by LAUER who was a German medalist.   They are in their original brass frames, with their original rope / cord on top.  They were probably meant to be hung on a wall or on the backside of a cabinet.  They’re very lightweight, as they are made of brass (and not bronze).

The overall height from the top of the hanging rope to the bottom of the frame is about 6″.

The height of the brass frame from top to bottom is about 3 1/2″ and the width about 2″

The plaques themselves measure about 2 1/8″ high, 1 1/8″ wide.

Hopefully, the pictures I’ve provided will show you the beautiful workmanship on these medals.   In all my years of hunting I have never seen any workmanship like this – of course, I haven’t seen everything !

Looking closely at them with a magnifier, it appears that they might have originally been silver plated.  I cannot tell 100%, nor can I tell how much of that plating is actually still there, due to the dirt that has accumulated.  I DO NOT attempt to clean or fix my antique metalware.  I prefer my thing to be as-is and so I will leave that up to the next owner to decide what to do.

The cord/rope on top looks to be original, and has some interesting workmanship on it, like a weave pattern.

Each one is signed “LAUER”.

One plaque is of MOZART, and reads:

    “GEB 27 JAN 1756  *  GEST 5 DEZ 1791”

    “W. A. MOZART”

The other plaque is of SCHUBERT, and reads:

    “GEB 31 JAN 1797   * GEST 19 NOV 1828”

    “F. P. SCHUBERT”

SHIPPING 
(How and when you’re gonna get it)
:

  • Where possible I will try to
    combine
    multiple purchases into one shipment to save you on shipping
    costs.
  • Items shipped after payment
    clearing MY bank
    .  Please note that this is not a full-time
    endeavor for me and I do have other responsibilities.  I always try
    to get these items shipped ASAP, but it might take a few days or perhaps
    as much as a WEEK OR TWO for me to get your item shipped out, depending upon many
    factors.  If you have a special
    situation and you want the item shipped ASAP, please arrange that with me BEFORE
    you bid or submit an offer for my acceptance.  Please don’t hold me responsible for the shipping/carrier’s
    efficiency.  I can only do what is
    in my control to get your treasure to you as soon as I possibly can.
  • I do not charge any
    handling fees, nor do I charge for packing materials/supplies.  The
    charge that I list for “shipping” is based upon many years’ (since 1997)
    experience of selling on eBay, and my policy is to quote a fixed price
    in order to keep it simple.  I generally ship items via USPS Priority
    Mail, but unless specifically mentioned in the listing then it would be my
    option to go for another method.  If I know that I’m sending it to
    you via Priority, then I’ll probably indicate that in the listing.

PAYMENT 
(You get the treasure, I get the moolah)
:

  • Payments not received
    within 3 days from end of auction – buyer risks right to purchase and
    appropriate feedback.

BIDDING:

  • Bidders with either NET negative
    feedback or a zero (0) rating must email me before bidding. I reserve the
    right to cancel your bid otherwise.
  • Make sure you re-review the
    entire listing, including questions/answers, before placing your bid since
    the listing might have additional information added later which comes up
    at the very bottom of the listing
    .
