An unusual vintage film prop of a Roman Army "Red Scorpion Battle Shield". Expertly made from brass, wood, steel and canvas, the large sextagonal sheild boasts handpainted Scorpion Icons in yellow and black on a red background. So strikingly retro is the design, that it could have easily have been a wall panel culled from the set of an exotic bar in a 60s or 70s movie! The back features a solid wood and steel handle, making it extremely easy to mount as a cool wall hanging.
The item has been cleaned and is in excellent vintage condition with minor age-related wear.
