19th century. 18 1/2" diameter, plated steel with rolled edge. The center boss made separately to magnify the sound when struck on stage! Reverse with the arm bands intact. In the 19th century, tens of thousands of small town theaters or "opera houses" stocked millions of prop weapons and armor, some of which was genuine and we owe them for its preservation. Today, actual prop weapons of the period are very rarely encountered.
