Round wall plaque with sculptured profile of Lenin, late 1940s - mid-1950s.

Made in brass and white porcelain, this is a very high quality piece. Measures 125 mm (approx. 5 inches) in diameter. This limited edition piece was produced at the Soviet state mint and is so marked on the reverse in Russian (it reads "Monetnyi Dvor" or literally "Mint" and shows the 50000 circulation number). On the reverse near the top, there is a provision for hanging it on the wall.

Made in brass and white porcelain, this is a very high quality piece. Measures 125 mm (approx. 5 inches) in diameter. This limited edition piece was produced at the Soviet state mint and is so marked on the reverse in Russian (it reads "Monetnyi Dvor" or literally "Mint" and shows the 50000 circulation number). On the reverse near the top, there is a provision for hanging it on the wall.

The original image for this plaque was created by the acclaimed Soviet artist Nikolay Sokolov, winner of as many as five Stalin Prize awards. His name is shown on the undercut of the shoulder. Famous for his renditions of Lenin and Stalin, he was actually best known for his graphics, especially propaganda cartoon drawings he made during WW2 as a member of famous Kukryniksy team. Among other things, Sokolov also designed a similar plaque with bas relief of Stalin which can be a nice companion piece for the Lenin plaque.

In outstanding, excellent condition. Probably never polished - virtually all of the original gilding seems to be still present, partly covered by light patina that adds character. The portrait is tightly attached to the plaque, not loose to the touch as is sometimes the case. The white enamel has acquired attractive age toning, has not yellowed or darkened, and is completely free of hairlines, chips or significant scratches. The reverse is in near mint condition, with beautifully preserved gilt finish, although the hanger shows evidence that the plaque was once put on the wall for display.
