Antique Porcelain Plaque Artist Signed Nude Psyche Cupid French KPM style (3140)
After Charles Joseph Chaplin: Antique porcelain plaque, signed and dated. Depicting young woman, partially nude, with crying cupid at her side. In original antique gilt wood (gesso) frame, sealed at the back, so whether it is KPM or Meissen or another manufacture is not clear, but the quality is the best. Measurements:frame is approx 16 1/4 X 22 1/4; Plaque 8 X 13 3/4 (sight). The original title of the plaque in English is : A song silenced. The plaque depicts a young girl with ribbons in her blond hair and a blue satin sash around her waist. Bare breasted with a diaphenous white wrap around her arms and a long pink wrap around her legs, a gold bracelet on one arm. She looks down, whether shyly or from moodiness. A lyre on one side, a crying Cupid / winged cherub on the other. The background is a mottled green with grey, blue and brown tones. The painting is superb - see wonderful details of face, hair, fingers, jewellery and body. The painting is signed on top and may refer to the identity of the sitter. Marie d'Aumont; next line reads d'ap chaplin and then the date 1879. We have been told that the d'ap signifies that the painting is after Charles Joshua Chaplain (1825 - 1891) - see signature. Similar works by Charles Joshua Chaplin eg Roses de Mai, 1877 shows a girl in a very similar pose, almost identically dressed undressed? The plaque comes in what appears to be it's original gilt wood frame, which is quite beautiful in it's own right.
The outer part of the frame (not seen in pictures), has a few negligible losses and there are some minor age cracks in the gilding (see pictures). Plaque is in very good condition with no damage/losses of any sort. Add Me to Your Favorite Sellers. Feel free to ask question.
