Brass Wall Plaque For Sale on 1stDibs

Choose from an assortment of styles, material and more with respect to the brass wall plaque you’re looking for at 1stDibs. Frequently made of brass, metal and wood, every brass wall plaque was constructed with great care. Whether you’re looking for an older or newer brass wall plaque, there are earlier versions available from the 19th Century and newer variations made as recently as the 20th Century. A brass wall plaque is a generally popular piece of furniture, but those created in Mid-Century Modern, Victorian and Art Deco styles are sought with frequency. A well-made brass wall plaque has long been a part of the offerings for many furniture designers and manufacturers, but those produced by Emaus, Salvador Teran and Black Forest are consistently popular.

How Much is a Brass Wall Plaque?

Prices for a brass wall plaque can differ depending upon size, time period and other attributes — at 1stDibs, they begin at $163 and can go as high as $12,500, while the average can fetch as much as $900.

Materials: Brass Furniture

Whether burnished or lacquered, brass can elevate a room.

From traditional spaces that use brass as an accent to contemporary rooms that embrace bold brass decor, there are many ways to incorporate the golden-hued metal.

“I find mixed metals to be a very updated approach, as opposed to the old days, when it was all shiny brass of dulled-out silver tones,” says interior designer Drew McGukin. “I especially love working with brass and blackened steel for added warmth and tonality. To me, aged brass is complementary across many design styles and can tend contemporary or traditional when pushed either way.”

He proves his point in a San Francisco entryway, where a Lindsey Adelman light fixture hangs above a limited-edition table and stools by Kelly Wearstler, all providing bronze accents. The walls were hand-painted by artist Caroline Lizarraga and the ombré stair runner is by DMc.

Find brass tables, case pieces and other furnishings now on 1stDibs.

Finding the Right Wall Decorations for You

An empty wall in your home is a blank canvas, and that’s good news. Whether you’ve chosen to arrange a collage of paintings in a hallway or carefully position a handful of wall-mounted sculptures in your dining room, there are a lot of options for beautifying your space with the antique and vintage wall decor and decorations available on 1stDibs.

If you’re seeking inspiration for your wall decor, we’ve got some ideas (and we can show you how to arrange wall art, too).

“I recommend leaving enough space above the piece of furniture to allow for usable workspace and to protect the art from other items damaging it,” says Susana Simonpietri, of Brooklyn home design studio Chango & Co.

Hanging a single attention-grabbing large-scale print or poster over your bar or bar cart can prove intoxicating, but the maximalist approach of a salon-style hang, a practice rooted in 17th-century France, can help showcase works of various shapes, styles and sizes on a single wall or part of a wall.

If you’re planning on creating an accent wall — or just aiming to bring a variety of colors and textures into a bedroom — there is more than one way to decorate with wallpaper. Otherwise, don’t overlook what textiles can introduce to a space. A vintage tapestry can work wonders and will be easy to move when you’ve found that dream apartment in another borough.

Express your taste and personality with the right ornamental touch for the walls of your home or office — find a range of contemporary art, vintage photography, paintings and other wall decor and decorations on 1stDibs now.
