Product Description

MONUMENTAL BRASSES AND BRASS RUBBING
In England from the 13th to the 16th Century memorial tombs in churches were often of incised slabs made from sheet brass called latten. The tradition came from Germany and Flanders where the brasses could be very ornate.  Generally in England the brasses were of a more simple design.  We have learned much about the style of armour and fashion of the day from these brasses.
The slabs were set into the floor of the churches and it became a popular hobby to take rubbings from them particularly in the 1960's and '70's to the extent that some were being damaged by too much rubbing.  The brasses that remain have now all been protected and consequently replicas have been made to continue this hobby, or purely for decorational purposes.
