    Hi all!:)
    Some of you have outstanding skills for deciphering interlocked monograms...
    I 'm submitting this complex puzzle to your brains!:joyful:

    A 6.5 by 4.5 centimeters silvered metal plaque, with a hare running through a forest of interlocked cursive capital letters!

    Marked on the frame with a reversed F joined to LE DOUBLE.:bucktooth:

    I found no artist\engraver with that name, only that "le double" may be a hunting term: Doubling its tracks.
    Said of the hunting beast which, to be cunning, comes back on its way.
    Hares and roes use this trick to escape the dogs)

    All I think I can identify are a R and D at the right end:arghh: Screenshot_20210516-121736_Photos_1375074053138454.jpg image_1375074201358646.jpg

    Mean this in the nicest way... How do you know they're meant to be both abstract trees and letters? I can't make out anything that would be a letter (except for perhaps "I") and sometimes a cigar is just a cigar. That said... If I stare at it long enough I see an "R" and a "D."

    Ha! I don't think it is just a cigar, just because of that:

    the letters there are engraved with bark pattern to look like tree;)
    The letters on my plaque seem more clear when you blink repeatedly quickly when looking at the pic! (Tongue in or out doesn't change the visibility:p :facepalm::hilarious:)

    Well, then... I see "P," "R," and "D." But -- warning -- I may be making it up.

    I'm smoking what Debora' smoking. I want to see letters, I just don't see any clear artistic representations of letters. I think the forms are simply unconscious automatic cursive structures.

    Ok, I'll give it a go: HLRR.:) That's the best I can do for now. I may be able to find more if you post it upside down, or sideways.:playful:

    I love puzzles. I even tried to make it spell out the word HARE, which would have been hilarious.

    Just to be annoying, can we see the back? Sometimes things are more visible on the reverse.

    Maybe theses 2 holes were intended for small tacs, to attach to a hunting trophy?
