    Large Bronze Bas Relief Portrait Plaque of Otto von Bismarck - The Iron Chancellor, Circa 1894. 16¼" x 23". This lovely relief portrait of Bismarck in military uniform is constructed of single cast bronze. The detail of certain elements is exceptional , including Bismarck's epaulettes and the wreathe of oak leaves beneath the portrait. In the lower right corner appears the name of the artist, "M. Vordermayer" (Ludwig Vordermayer) and a foundry mark in the lower left corner "Aktien Gesellschaft: Gladenbeck. Berlin". This heavy bronze plaque probably once graced a German government building or office and would be the centerpiece of any collector's "war room" or study.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
