Center Plates are used in the center of western breastcollars. They can be used in place of a round ring in the center of the collar, or you can snip off any loops, and fasten it with glue as the centerpiece decor of a one-piece collar.


Etched Metal Center Plates

Etched Metal Center Plates are Nickel Plated brass, and are flat on the back side. They do come with a lacquer coating that can be removed (and should be if you intend to solder any additional decoration or features to them.) These are designed for three-piece breastcollar styles and served to replace the center "ring", while adding a decorative element.

All Center Plates are sold individually.

Cast Pewter Center Plates

Cast pewter Center Plates feature detail with dimensional relief, and are suitable for adding decoration to one-piece breastcollar styles. They come with "pegs" on the back that you can insert into holes, (and bend over on the back side for a secure attachement.) You can also easily snip off the pegs and opt to glue the plates in place instead. (We recommend standard super glue for permanent attachment of cast pewter parts.). Check out our Finishing Brochure-BR2 for detailed information on easily polishing and finishing castings.

Pewter items do require some finishing, but they can also be easily reshaped, sanded, and modified to suit many projects. Some people prefer them because the metal is softer and somewhat less prone to accidentally scratching a model. You can even carve added details in them with a sharp tool (such as a carbide scraper or a dremel bur.)
