Ever seen a brass plate like this before?

Article about: Saw this for \\$25. Anyone have any idea what this is? I can make out enough on the writing on the bottom edge to read "Berlin" on it.

    EDIT: I see these are called "push plates" and they are fakes of this type. I wasn't sure what it was, but it looks like the forum AI has provided links on my post, to answer my question.

    Brass push plate!!!

    I'm guessing these are all fakes then.

    Arno Breker - Berlin ???? - Steinsilohagerwerkatten is what I can make out.

    I can't see the 4 letters between Berlin & Steinsilohagerwerkatten/ One lools like a C and maybe an H? Thanks for showing.

    Hi Rossi. Looks like the Arno Breker is the name Ade had posted about in the link I added to my first post. Evidently these are post war fantasy items, that may be making their way back into the mix. Kind of neat I guess, but not original unfortunately.

    Is that Swastika backwards on that puppy or am I wrong? I am not the Nazi Logo Police but seems reversed or is that common at times. Himmler and Hitler would not have been happy. Maybe I am just being dumb?
