Description

The manufacturer of such pressed copper honour boards, Wunderlich Limited, was one of Australia’s foremost makers of military badges and memorials for both world wars and there are many examples of the company’s memorials and honour boards throughout the country. The majority of the honour boards represent the art nouveau styling that characterised much of Wunderlich’s stamped and pressed metal products. The majority of this output was between the early 1900s and the 1930s, but especially in the period during and after the First World War.
