 Below is the elegant Sterling Silver Plaque (130.2mm x 76.2mm) in the original Suede Frame (165.1mm x 114.3mm). This elegant presentation was made to a Judge (Jury) in 1900, at the time of only the very II Olympiad in Paris, France.  Note the Sterling Silver version with it's distinctive Suede Frame is rectangular in overall appearance. However, the Sterling Silver interior is actually in an artistically appealing interior Sculpted edging style format.
