19th-early 20th century. 18 1/4” diameter, slightly domed with three raised annular ribs. The edge folded over for strength. The center with a gilt relief lion head in a wreath. Reverse with web hand grip and one lacking. Surface bright with a few small damages from use. At the time, tens of thousands of small theaters provided live entertainment in cities and small towns throughout the country. Each stocked weapons and armor such as this for plays. Today, virtually all of it has perished. Good display.
