Rainy day in Scottsdale today Frown, been experimenting with my digital camera and thought I'd share this split-plate Howard. Wonder who was in charge of coming up with the delightful intricate patterns? Was it the man doing the actual damaskeening or was he given a certain pattern to follow? In any case they came up with a beauty with this example, wouldn't you agree?

Moving from the center out, I count eight successive damascening patterns on those plates! I especially like the crenalations about half way to the edge. and the drapery beyond them. My favorite touch is the minidots on the interior edge of the drapery. I suspect that that design element was especially time consuming to implement. I always look for minidots on later "early" Howards [sic].
