Please find for sale an extremely rare silver and enamel plaque to commemorate the peace treaty of Nijmegen 1678.
The J C initials underneath may relate to Jean Baptiste Colbert who was a highly influential French politician then.
The plaque itself is British hallmarked for 1793.
There are two lugs on the back that suggests this was made for fixing to an object.
A fascinating historical piece and possible one off.
The Treaties of Peace of Nijmegen (Négotiations de Nimegue or Négotiations de la Paix de Nimègue; Friede von Nimwegen) were a series of treaties signed in the Dutch city of Nijmegenbetween August 1678 and December 1679. The treaties ended various interconnected wars amongFrance, the Dutch Republic, Spain, Brandenburg, Sweden, Denmark, the Prince-Bishopric of Münster, and the Holy Roman Empire. The most significant of the treaties was the first, which established peace between France and the Dutch Republic.
The Franco–Dutch War of 1672–78 was the source of all the other wars that were ended formally at Nijmegen. Separate peace treaties were arranged for conflicts like the Third Anglo-Dutch War and the Scanian War, but all of them had been directly caused by, and form part of, the Franco-Dutch War. England initially participated in the war on the French side, but withdrew in 1674 in the Treaty of Westminster.

From these you will get a very good idea of the general condition, more so than I can describe concisely in words. If you are unsure of any aspect of the condition, please e-mail me before bidding.
