    Ornate Turkish Shield.
    The shield, of circular convex form, has four large panels of painted and inlaid decoration depicting floral set scenes. The center is decorated with a Middle Eastern pattern set around four domed oversized floral bosses. It measures approximately 32-inches in diameter. All one piece, metal backing present along with leather cushion holder and rope strap. Probably 20th century.

    Condition: Good to very good. Shield had numerous dings and marks throughout. Some loses to painted pattern. Shield has been lacquered extensively. One of the four bosses is a bit loose. Metal backing with age wear, mellow patina and stains from poor storage, leather pad and rope handle with age wear, cracks and separations. Added screws and hinges not original to the shield.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
