With a nice connection to the National Portrait Gallery in London we have a pair of gilt brass exhibit plaques dating to the early part of the 20th century.   The plaques denote two of the exhibits held at the Gallery in London -  a portrait of Charles Sackville, Sixth Earl of Dorset (exhibit 250) and a sculture of William Scott, Baron Stowell (exhibit 125).   Both of these exhibits were acquired by the museum in the 1860s.     Both exhibits are still held by the National Portrait Gallery with the same exhibit numbers.   These plaques  had been owned by a private collector for a number of years and and are heavy substantial pieces.   The price is for the pair.

Measuring:  Sackville: 34 cm x 9.5 cm (overall)  Scott: 23cm x 12 cm
