Beautiful Hand Painted German K.'Büssende Magdalena'' ("Penitent Magdalene") Artist Signed Ed. Königliche Porzellan-Manufaktur (Royal Porcelain Factory), Berlin, Germany. It depicts a young partially nude reclining Magdalene, wrapped in a blue cloak, reading a book. The original painting was reportedly painted in 1760.The plaque is superbly detailed and well-executed, and is signed Ed. Eckardt in the extreme lower right corner of the plaque. There is a further inscription below the signature, but it is obscured by the frame. Eckardt, it likely says Dresden below the signature. Eckardt is known to have painted this specific subject, as well as other religious themed paintings, on K.
The plaque measures approximately 9 ½" x 6½". The framed plaque measures 13½" x 10½". The plaque is properly marked; it is impressed on the back with K. And scepter, the letter "W" and a symbol, as well as the metric measurements 237 and 158.I guarantee this plaque to be 100 years old or older, of German origin, produced by the famed K. Plaque: 9½ " x 6½" (24,13 cm x 16,51 cm).
