Our lithographed tin scalloped plate is quite special. It has the prettiest colors and the finest detail you can imagine. The plate shows a peaceful pastoral image of a shepherd and his sheep.  This was a common motif in early lithography. Our plate has the best lithography I have ever seen in miniature tin. The picture looks more like an oil painting than a lithograph. In fact, it looks so much like it was hand-painted, I used a jeweler's loupe for better study.  I could see it was a lithograph. The detail is impressive, with the variegated sunset, the facial features on the shepherd and the sheep showing the lines along their curly wool coats.  2 9/16” diameter, edge rise of 3/16”
