Beautiful Hand Painted Austrian Porcelain Plaque - Rob Pilz, Vienna. The plaque depicts a young maiden at a crossroads, forced to choose between love and wealth.A cherub sits at the intersection pointing the way towards love rather than wealth. The plaque is nicely detailed and well-executed, and is signed Mohau in the lower right corner of the plaque. The plaque measures 7½" x 5½" and is framed in a very ornate, antique, hand-carved wood and gesso frame measuring 14½" x 12½". 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 guarantee this plaque to be 100 years old or older and completely hand painted (not a transfer)! 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.
