This authentic vintage French plaque was awarded in 1931 by the agricultural committee of Oise, just north of Paris, as the 3rd prize for heifers (young female that has not borne a calf) or cows of the Flemish cattle breed (Race Flamande) in a competition held in Compiègne, a commune in northern France.

The plaque was originally a pine green that has faded over the decades; remnants of the green paint on the backside. Little to no wear to the raised letters. The French breeders would display their award plaques on the exterior of the barn for all to see. Today these plaques are lovely displayed on a wall in a grouping. Heavy, solid cast iron. Weighs 0.400 kg.

Measures 7.5 inches by 6.5 inches (center), excluding loop at the top.

Price includes shipping within the USA only.
