The back of the plaque is impressed 313 suggesting that the porcelain blank itself was probably manufactured in Germany by Hutschenreuther. The plaque was decorated, however, at the famed Austrian art studio of Rob Pilz, Vienna, and is clearly marked.
I personally guarantee this plaque to be 100% authentic, over 100 years old, and completely hand painted (not a transfer)! I guarantee this not to be one of the many fake plaques that have unfortunately inundated the marketplace. Plaque: 7½ " x 5½" (19,05 cm x 13,97 cm). Frame: 14½" x 12½" (36,83 cm x 31,75 cm). This wonderfully decorated portrait plaque is in EXCELLENT condition with a beautiful original glaze.There are NO chips, cracks, scratches or repairs. I detected no condition issues whatsoever with the plaque itself. Any white spots or lines in the photographs are from the flash and are not damage. The extremely ornate wood and gesso frame is in excellent condition with only minor issues/losses consistent with age. The outer portion of the frame appears to be older than the inner portion.
