Germany(?): Theodore Herzl uniface bronze portrait plaque by Fritz (Fred) Kormis, c. 1910s-1920s; size: 52.5 x 60.5mm; weight: 104.55g. Kormis was a Jewish sculptor & medalist, born in Germany and active between 1910-1977; emigrated to Holland (1933) and then to Britain (1934). Freidenburg references this plaquette in GJPM-59; probably dates to the art-deco period, and from Germany as unmentioned in Polak's book of Dutch medals - also per Kormis' signature style which changed later to just "Kormis" on pieces he executed in Britain.
