Broad-rim circular plate with shallow, flat well engraved with a depiction of St. Peter, with rayed halo, holding a key in his right hand and walking to the right on a mound with flowers, labeled "SPEDCERVS" at upper right; a continuous vine or stem of flowers fills rim. Rim beaded on underside; no foot ring. Underside has one incised circle around a partial, small, shield-shaped mark stamped at center with raised "Z / S" on one side and illegible motif on the other. One of two engraved plates depicting Sts. Peter and Bartholomew, DL*311692A-B.
Language and mark not identified; needs further research. St. Peter is identifiable by his attribute (key). Donor believed DL*311692A-B to be communion plates; hole in rims suggests at some point they must have hung as decorations.
