ANTIQUE HAND PAINTED KPM PORCELAIN PLAQUE. The painting alternately described as "Hansel", or, as sulky German shepherd boy. The plaque itself measures 6¾" x 5". The quality and detail of the painting is EXCEPTIONAL. The plaque is artist-signed Ernst Brödel, and was painted at the well-known Franz Xavier Thallmaier art studio in Munich, Germany, known for their high-quality porcelain paintings.The original artist studio sticker is still attached to the back of the plaque. The black shadow-box frame measures 14" x 12" x 1½.
A sticker on the frame suggests that the plaque was framed at the Traxel & Maas Art Store, 206 W. This is a superior plaque suitable for the experienced KPM/Hutschenreuther collector. The plaque is impressed on the back with K. And scepter, as well as the additional markings/ciphers :B, 3 and h, confirming that the porcelain plaque itself was made at the famous K.
The plaque is framed in a beautiful antique gilt wood and gesso frame that appears to be original to the plaque, which in turn is housed within the previously described shadow-box preservation frame. I guarantee this plaque to be 100% authentic, genuine K. 100 years old or older, and completely hand painted (not a transfer)! Plaque: 6¾" x 5" (17,15 cm x 12,7 cm). Frame: 14" x 12" x 1½.This wonderfully decorated portrait plaque is in EXCELLENT condition with a beautiful original glaze. There are NO cracks, chips, repairs or restorations. Any white spots or lines in the photographs are from the flash and are not damage.
The frame itself is in EXCELLENT condition with only very minor wear consistent with age.
