Description

Made by De La Rue Plastics this is a rectangular plaque of cream urea formaldehyde, moulded with the figure of a naked male winged warrior. The warrior has raised arms, with the right arm holding a sword, and is about to sever the three heads of a dragon. It is signed McM and has the Morse code for 'V', representing 'Victory', repeated five times acros the base. Its powerful design harks back to Art Deco motifs.
