Fire plate, Hovingham
These metal plaques, or badges, erected by insurance companies, were used to show that a property was insured. There are two types - early plaques were mostly cast in lead and displayed either a painted or engraved number which corresponded to the number of the insurance policy. The second type, known as a fire-plate, (example shown here), was pressed from either thin copper-plate, or tinned sheet-iron.
