                  Each Rubbing is a Hand Made Original

      This is a hand made rubbing of            Saint George and the
 Dragon, measuring 13" X 8 1/2", created with metallic gold and
 red and azure blue wax crayons on a special black rag paper. The
 woodcut is from the 1590 edition of Spencer's 'The Fairie Queen',
    dedicated to Queen Elizabeth I. Saint George is depicted as a
    medieval armoured knight on horseback and symbolised the
triumph of the Christian church over evil and paganism. The border
                    is a Celtic knotwork design.

  This woodcut is from an exhibition featured at The Washington National Cathedral by
The London Brass Rubbing Centre and has more recently been on a National tour as part
 of their brass rubbing workshop. Rubbings like this one, hand made by one of their craft
 instructors, make unusual and interesting gifts. I will send it to you rolled up in a strong
postal tube. It can be hung either from wooden dowels or matted and framed under glass.
  Shipping and handling charges include insurance cover during transit. I am pleased to
    offer a combined shipping cost if you decide to buy more than one rubbing from my
              collection and they can be rolled together into one mailing tube

        Each Brass Rubbing is a hand made original.

   This is a hand made rubbing of a Celtic Cross from Kelso, Scotland, using
metallic gold and silver wax on a special black rag paper. The original cross
stands on a long shaft, as did the earliest of circular Celtic crosses. The ring
 on the cross, which is the defining part of a Celtic cross, is thought to be a
 combination of Druid sun/moon worship and Christianity. The cross section
  is shaped in the earliest cross form of an X turned on its side. Drawings of
   this shape were in the earliest monasteries on the British Isles. The half-
  circle in the arms of the cross are Stafford knots, symbolizing the Trinity.
    The Stafford knots are bound together by another knot that goes to the
centre. Although all these lines and angles do not actually join in the centre
(that would break a cardinal rule of Celtic art-having an open centre point)
                         the appearance still remains.
    The engraving from which this rubbing was taken is from an exhibit and workshop organized by The
   London Brass Rubbing Centre that has recently been on a National tour as part of their brass rubbing
      workshop. Rubbings like this one, hand made by one of their craft instructors, make unusual and
 interesting gifts.I will send it to you rolled up in a strong postal tube. The rubbing is approximately 10" X
 12". It can be hung either from wooden dowels or matted and framed under glass. Shipping and handling
charges include insurance cover during transit.I would be pleased to offer a combined shipping price if you
decide to order more than one rubbing from my collection and they can be rolled in the same mailing tube.

                       Each Rubbing is a hand made original

  This is a hand made rubbing, using metallic gold and forest green wax
compounds on special black rag paper. This beautifully decorated woodcut
  is based upon a design from the Book of Durrow, written in the late 7th
century. The Book of Durrow was composed at the monastery of Durrow in
     Ireland, which was founded in the 6th century by St. Columba. The
decoration consists largely of pages of interlace patterns. Each of the four
Gospels begins with a decorative initial, preceded by an illuminated 'carpet'
   page, such as the one on which the design was based. The paper size
                           is 20" long X 15" wide.

   I will send it to you in a strong postal tube, together with a copy of The
  Historical Notes published by The London Brass Rubbing Centre, which
 will not only detail the dates and origin of this plate but also all the others
            in the Centre's wonderful collection of facsimile plates.

       A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE ORIGINS AND ART OF BRASS RUBBINGS
          THESE RUBBING'S REPRESENT ART HISTORY, DURING THE MEDIEVAL PERIOD
     Monumental Brasses were crafted by silversmiths and stonemasons during the Middle Ages,
                and became the height of fashion in Europe between 1280-1650.
         They were 'pictures' of actual people, and show the customs, etc .of the period.
                To make a rubbing we stretch rag paper over the engraved plate,
                        & use metallic wax compound's to rub the image.
   This is a hand made rubbing of The Canterbury Cross created with
 metallic gold & red wax crayons on a special black rag paper. The original,
  probably made in the 9th Century AD, was found in St. Georges Street,
  Canterbury and is a gilt cruciform brooch with triangular silver panels,
incised with a 'triquetra' pattern. The engraving is 6 1/2 inches in diameter
            on paper 10" X 10" to allow for matting and framing.

Created with metallic gold, silver and copper wax crayon on a special black
rag paper. The attention to detail using three colors makes this a rare find.
 This rubbing is a large - 42" high X 20“ wide. Robert the Bruce was one of
  the important figures in Scotland's long struggle for independence from
England. Although he was crowned in 1306, it wasn't until 1327, after many
battles, that he was acknowledged as lawful king by the English. He died in
 1329. Although this rubbing is almost 4ft high, the original version was an
enormous memorial that one of his descendants had set up in 1889 to cover
 his tomb in Dumfermline Abbey in Fife, Scotland. Many Americans claim a
    close ancestral tie to this historical figure; you may be one of them!

This is a hand made rubbing of The Celtic Circle created with
   metallic gold wax crayon on a special black rag paper. I would
emphasize that the paper is black, as the flash photography I used
  might give the impression that the paper is dark blue. A design
   from a page of the gospel of St. Matthew in the Book of Kells,
probably the most splendid early Medieval illuminated manuscript
still surviving. This design consists of five interlacing birds and ten
  reptiles or serpents with topknots and tails. The design is 8 1/2
  inches in diameter and the paper measures 15" X 15" to allow for
                       matting and framing.

This is a spectacular hand made, brass rubbing of Sir John D'Abernoun,
created with metallic gold wax crayon on a special black rag paper. It is not
    a print, & will be custom made for you. Unfortunately the camera flash
makes it appear that the gold coloring is not consistent throughout Sir John.
   The true color of the entire rubbing can be best judged by looking at the
  tunic in the photo to your left. This rubbing is taken from a replica 'brass'
   and measures 36" high X 15" wide. The original memorial brass is dated
 1277 and is the earliest surviving brass in England and can be found in the
 parish church in Stoke D'Abernon in Surrey, England. Sir John's arms born
on the shield are "azure, a chevron or" and the blue enamel on the original
has also survived. Sir John wears chain mail under a linen surcoat. Note the
stitching on the sword belt. He wears genouilleres to protect his knees and
                      he carries a lance as well as a shield.

 This is a hand made rubbing of Sir William Fitzralph, created with metallic
 gold wax crayon on a special black rag paper. This is a large rubbing 36"
high X 15" wide. Sir William's original brass is dated 1323 and can be found
in Pedmarsh in the County of Essex in England. Several hundreds of these
   monumental 'brasses' adorned the churches throughout England, but
  religious purges in the 1500's and 1600's destroyed or damaged many. It
 was the custom in medieval England for those who could afford it, to have
 brass plaques engraved to their memory. These were often tomb markers
  and portraits and were laid on the floor or walls of the local church. This
rubbing of Sir William, shows the first introduction of plate armour after the
 purely mail armour previously used and is said to be one of the few, very
                     fine and very early military brasses.

  Rubbings like this were part of the exhibition of rubbings displayed by The London
  Brass Rubbing Centre at The Washington National Cathedral in Washington DC.

                   Each Brass Rubbing is a hand made original.

This very special collection of Brass Rubbings, really of Museum quality and
  presentation, are all taken from the famous memorial plate to Marguerite
de Scornay, who was Abbess of Nivelle in Belgium from 1443 - 1460. The full
 plate rubbing, hand crafted using metallic gold wax crayon on a special rag
paper measures 25" high X 35" wide. The panel , the survivor of three, after
 1940's bombing, shows the Abbess being presented to the Virgin and Child
                by St. Margaret of Antioch, her patron saint.

       In addition there are four cameo hand rubbings in this
                   collection from Nivelles Abbey.

  Each cameo rubbing has been carefully taken from a portion of the main
     plate in order to highlight the important features of the memorial
                                 illustration.
   The first cameo, again reproduced with a metallic gold wax crayon on a
   black rag paper and measuring 10" X 10" features the four corners of
   the full plate and illustrate the four symbols of the Evangelists. St.
 Matthew is the winged man, St. Mark the lion, St. Luke the ox,
                    and St. John the eagle.

   The second cameo rubbing is of the Madonna and Child and is a
 lovely vignette of the Virgin Mary section, again hand rubbed, but this time
using silver and gold wax crayons on a black rag paper and measuring 25" X
                                     15".

    The third cameo is of the devilish Dragon, seen here tugging at the
   Abbess's gown. This gold on black is again a hand rubbed reproduction.



     The final piece and the fifth rubbing in this lovely collection, is of the
   Abbess        herself, resplendent in her flowing gown and elaborate head
               dress. Reproduced in gold wax crayon on black paper.

  Margaret of Antioch, the other figure in the full picture, is the Abbess's
   patron saint and the dragon is said to be the saint's special symbol.
 The complete memorial plate was specially commissioned, engraved and
mounted above the high alter in order to commemorate an annual mass that
                  Marguerite de Scornay founded there.

 I invite you to visit my eBay store, The Wonders of Britain, where you
    will find a host of other brass rubbings, all hand crafted in a variety of
   metallic colors and sizes, together with many other historical items and
            interesting books that I have brought over from England.

   The facsimilie plate from which these five rubbings were made is from an exhibition featured at The
 Washington National Cathedral by The London Brass Rubbing Centre and has more recently been on a
National tour as part of their brass rubbing workshop. Rubbings like these, hand made by one of their craft
    instructors, make unusual and interesting gifts. I will send them to you rolled up in a strong postal

     facsimilie memorial plates and detail the dates and some historical
             background that make them all the more interesting.

 This is a hand made rubbing of the St. Andrews Celtic Cross , Scotland,
using metallic gold wax on a special black rag paper. This cross was erected
   in 1871 at St. Andrews, Scotland. Similar crosses can be found all over
   Scotland and Ireland. The entire cross contains Stafford knots that are
  generally considered to be a sign of the Trinity. The design is frequently
  used for interlacing border. The outside ring is a wonderful key pattern
from the Pictish school of art. This design is found in almost every culture.
Europeans were amazed to find it in the Mayan temples in Central America.
   American Indians used it extensively in their artwork. The early Picts
started the design from spirals, squaring them off and then extending them
       in a line. This is also a very common design used in labyrinths.

    The facsimilie engraving from which this rubbing was taken is from an exhibit and
 workshop organized by The London Brass Rubbing Centre that has recently been on a

Trumpington,       created with gold, silver and copper wax crayons
 on a special black rag paper. The original memorial brass is dated
    1289, from Trumpington in the County of Cambridgeshire in
  England, and is said to be one of only four full length brasses to
  survive that period. This rubbing has been taken from a smaller
replica 'brass' and measures 36" high X 15" wide. It shows Sir Roger
    in armour of the Surcoat period. He carries a long sword and
 concave shield. His head rests on a great tilting helm. He is known

on the last of the crusades. Although his face is copper, I would be
                     happy to change it to gold.

      A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE ORIGINS AND ART OF BRASS RUBBINGS
         THESE RUBBING'S REPRESENT ART HISTORY, DURING THE MEDIEVAL PERIOD
    Monumental Brasses were crafted by silversmiths and stonemasons during the Middle Ages,
               and became the height of fashion in Europe between 1280-1650.
         They were 'pictures' of actual people, and show the customs,etc.of the period.
               To make a rubbing we stretch rag paper over the engraved plate,
                       & use metallic wax compound's to rub the image.


     This is a hand made rubbing of Sir William Fitzralph, created with
    metallic gold, silver and copper wax compounds on a special black rag
paper. This is a large rubbing 36" high X 15" wide. Sir William's original brass
    is dated 1323 and can be found in Pebmarsh in the County of Essex in
    England. Several hundreds of these monumental 'brasses' adorned the
 churches throughout England, but religious purges in the 1500's and 1600's
   destroyed or damaged many. It was the custom in medieval England for
those who could afford it, to have brass plaques engraved to their memory.
 These were often tomb markers and portraits and were laid on the floor or
    walls of the local church. This rubbing of Sir William, shows the first
 introduction of plate armour after the purely mail armour previously used
 and is said to be one of the few, very fine and very early military brasses.

I will send this rubbing to you in a strong postal tube, together with a copy
  of the Historical Notes, published by The London Brass Rubbing Centre,
which not only details the dates and place of origin of this rubbing but also
        all those wonderful facsimilie plates exhibited by the Centre.

  This is a beautiful hand made rubbing of Lady Margaret Peyton (nee
   Bernard) rather famously known as 'The Lace Lady', created with gold
     wax crayon on a special black rag paper. This rubbing is taken from a
replica of a memorial 'brass' and measures 30" high X 15" wide; the original
       plate is featured in the parish church in Isleham. in the County of
    Cambridgeshire, England and is dated 1427. Lady Margaret's engraved
effigy is featured on the wall of the parish church together with her husband
    Thomas Peyton and Thomas's second wife Margaret(nee Frances). Our
 Margaret here was the daughter of Sir John Bernard and his sole heir. She
     wears a butterfly headdress, briefly popular at that time, with gauze
  stretched over a wire framework and requiring a plucked hairline; it was
  thought to be improper for a lady to show any hair in public. Her gown is
    finely embroidered, not with lace in fact, but with fine Italian brocade.

   The 'brass' from which this rubbing was made is from an exhibition featured at The Washington
 National Cathedral by The London Brass Rubbing Centre and has more recently been on a National

This is a hand made rubbing of a very unusual engraving of Edward III, said
to be the only representation of a medieval king found on 'brasses'; created
here using metallic gold, azure blue and red wax crayons on a special black
rag paper. The facsimilie brass size is 12" X 4" and the paper size is 15" X
10" to allow plenty of room for matting and framimg. The king is shown
wearing jupons bearing the quartered arms of France (fleurs de lis) and
England (three lions). This coat of arms was assumed by Edward III for the
first time in 1341, when he laid claim to the throne of France. Edward
wears a crown, but carries no shield. This plate is a portion of a memorial
brass laid down in Elsing in the county of Norfolk, England for Sir Hugh
Hastings who was Steward to Edward III's Queen Philippa.

This is a hand made rubbing, using gold ,silver, red and blue wax crayons
 on special black rag paper. This beautifully decorated woodcut is based
upon a design from the Book of Durrow, written in the late 7th century. The
  Book of Durrow was composed at the monastery of Durrow in Ireland,
  which was founded in the 6th century by St. Columba. The decoration
 consists largely of pages of interlace patterns. Each of the four Gospels
 begins with a decorative initial, preceded by an illuminated 'carpet' page,
such as the one on which the design was based. The paper size is 20" long
                                  X 15" wide.

     Monumental Brasses were crafted by silversmiths and stonemasons during the Middle Ages,
                and became the height of fashion in Europe between 1280-1650.
          They were 'pictures' of actual people, and show the customs,etc.of the period.
                To make a rubbing we stretch rag paper over the engraved plate,
                        & use metallic wax compound's to rub the image.
This is a hand made rubbing of a very unusual engraving of Saint George on horseback,
 spearing the dragon, his shield bearing a cross. This is the cross of St. George, a red cross
 on a white field, which formed the flag of England and is incorporated in the Union Jack;
   created here using metallic gold wax crayon on a special black rag paper.Saint George
   became patron saint of England and several other countries. The Order of the Garter,
founded about 1347 is under his patronage. The facsimilie brass size is 9 1/2" X 9 1/2" and
the paper size is 12" X 15" to allow plenty of room for matting and framimg. This plate is a
  portion of a memorial brass laid down in Elsing in the county of Norfolk, England for Sir
               Hugh Hastings who was Steward to Edward III's Queen Philippa




 This is a hand made rubbing of Saint George and the Dragon, measuring 13" X 8
1/2", created with gold and silver wax crayons on a special black rag paper. The woodcut is
   from the 1590 edition of Spencer's 'The Fairie Queen', dedicated to Queen Elizabeth I.
 Saint George is depicted as a medieval armoured knight on horseback and symbolised the
  triumph of the Christian church over evil and paganism. The border is a Celtic knotwork
                                          design.
    This is a beautiful hand made rubbing of Edward the Black Prince,
created with gold wax crayon on a special black rag paper. This rubbing is taken
 from a replica of a modern 'brass' and measures 28" high X 15" wide. Engraved
  from the detail on the Prince's memorial statue in Canterbury Cathedral, this
  modern 'brass' shows the family's heraldic emblems clearly. The Black Prince
     was the eldest son of Edward III but died before his father and was never
 crowned. He is famous for his chivalry and prowess in battle and was given his
      name because he wore distinctive armour. His son was the last of the
                               Plantagent Monarchs
  This is a hand made rubbing of a very unusual engraving of Edward III, said to be the
only representation of a medieval king found on 'brasses'; created here using metallic gold,
  azure blue and red wax crayons on a special black rag paper. The facsimilie brass size is
 12" X 4" and the paper size is 15" X 10" to allow plenty of room for matting and framimg.
 The king is shown wearing jupons bearing the quartered arms of France (fleurs de lis) and
   England (three lions). This coat of arms was assumed by Edward III for the first time in
  1341, when he laid claim to the throne of France. Edward wears a crown, but carries no
    shield. This plate is a portion of a memorial brass laid down in Elsing in the county of
   Norfolk, England for Sir Hugh Hastings who was Steward to Edward III's Queen Philippa.
  This is a hand made rubbing of a very unusual engraving of    Henry II, Henry
  Plantagenet, created here using metallic gold, blue and red wax crayons on a
special black rag paper. The facsimilie brass size is 12" X 4" and the paper size is 15"
    X 10" to allow plenty of room for matting and framimg. Henry is shown wearing
jupons bearing the quartered arms of France (fleurs de lis) and England (three lions).
 This coat of arms was assumed by Edward III for the first time in 1341, when he laid
 claim to the throne of France. Henry, cousin to King Edward, holds in his right hand
    his tlting helm, on which is a lion for a crest, and in the left a short lance with
 pennon. This plate is a portion of a memorial brass laid down in Elsing in the county
   of Norfolk, England for Sir Hugh Hastings who was Steward to Edward III's Queen
                                         Philippa.

                Each Brass Rubbing is a hand made original.

This is a hand made rubbing of John and Mary Rixman, created with
gold wax crayon on a special black rag paper. This rubbing is 26" high X 24"
   wide. This lovely rubbing was made from a replica of the original plate
dated 1621 in Bray in the County of Berkshire, England. It is a very popular
  wedding and anniversary gift because of the charming inscription. John
Rixman was a fellow of St. John's College, Oxford, at a time when university
   fellows were celibate. He had to resign his academic career in order to
                            marry Mary in 1585.

 The inscription reads " When Oxford gave thee two degrees in art And love
possest thee master of my heart They college fellowship thow lefst for mine
And nought but deatfe could seprate me fro thine Thirty five yeares we livde
in wedlocke bands Convioyned in our hearts as well as handes etc etc" They
 lived happily until John's death in 1620, and in her will Mary set up a trust
      fund for the clothing and apprenticing of three poor boys a year.
