#3044 - Berlin 1936 Summer Olympics Gilt Bronze Marble Plaque Estimate: $3,000+

Uncommon Olympic presentation plaque featuring two gilt bronze medals issued for the Berlin 1936 Summer Games. Mounted to a 6.75 x 3.5 x .75 marble base weighing exactly 2 lbs, the medals, believed to be uniface and having the same characteristics as winner's medals, depict both sides of Giuseppi Cassioli’s classic medal design; the front, inscribed, “XI. Olympiad, Berlin, 1936,” features a ‘Seated Victory’ with the Coliseum in the background, and the reverse portrays a winner carried by several jubilant athletes. Bearing the requisite qualities of a 1936 Berlin winner’s medal, this unusual display was presumably used as a promotional design piece or as a commemorative gift presented to Olympic officials. From The Mason Dinehart Collection.
