The painting depicts 3 partially clad maidens reclining in an ethereal winter wonderland. The plaque is superbly detailed and well-executed, and is signed H.Kray in the lower left. The plaque measures 10" x 8" and is framed in a relatively new 13" x 11" gilded wood frame. The plaque is impressed on the back with a post-1904 Hutschenreuther shield and crown mark, along with a 3-digit number code (illegible). Only the very bottom of the shield is clearly visible. I have instead carefully created an opening in the back so that the mark may be viewed.
I still have the original photos of the back of the plaque and will gladly provide them upon request. I guarantee this plaque to be approximately 90 years old and completely hand painted (not a transfer)! Plaque: 10 " x 8" (25,4 cm x 20,32 cm). Frame: 13" x 11" (33,02 cm x 27,94 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 frame is in excellent condition with no issues. If you have any questions about this item, please contact me.
