The Director Vince is a large imagery of a cathedral on a copper printing plate. It has the remains of the magazine pages featuring The Cologne Mens Choir. Which is likely to also be linked to the Russian play Don Cossack Chorus & Dance. Out of the hundred of printing plates I have come across, this is the very first one I have found with the layer of papers still attached.
Vince is a commercial copper printing plate, dating from the early 20th Century. The images here offering an insight into life at the time.
These were basically photographic images transposed onto purpose made copper plates, which were then arranged and fixed at whatever point of the page they were to be used at by means of pins (the holes of which can still be seen)
The plates show how far copper plate printing had come by the early 20th century, with images such as these being used to print off great volumes of newspaper and magazine articles
Use these unique plates purely for decorate effect and add non glass frame, or more functional coasters and trivets. Or maybe collect a few as a decorative project as wall tiles. Plate dates 1920c
