Antique Mounted French Brass Shield "VII" (Roman Numeral 7)


19th C. French brass shield with a Roman Numeral cut out.  Most of the backs of these has a piece of metal at the base of the cutout and at the top of the cutout.  It appears that something translucent could be placed there and a candle or light source placed behind it.  Not all of these have the tracks.  Unsure of the original use of these.  Each has been mounted on a black rod which attaches to a black metal base.

Condition:  The shield shows some patina and some spots throughout.  It does bend back slightly.  The base is metal and painted black with some paint missing towards the center and some light scuffs.
