BERLIN KPM STYLE PORCELAIN PORTRAIT PLAQUE BRONZE DORE FRAME HAND PAINTED 2 OF 2. A finely painted antique porcelain plaque portraying a beautiful young woman, wearing elaborate headwear, and obviously a member of the aristocracy. It is an oval shape plaque sitting in bronze dore frame and is very well painted (it is 100% hand painted) by a very skilled artist. Please be sure to read the Age and Condition paragraphs below.I find no identifying makings on the plaque other than an impressed letter E and number 15. I also do not see any artist signature on the front side of the plaque. Regardless, it is a finely and skillfully painted antique porcelain plaque. A strikingly beautiful plaque in great original condition! I do my best to describe all items as accurately as possible and to the best of my ability. Some of my photos may be somewhat lighter or darker than actual to better show detail or color. However, do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, comments, or with requests for additional pictures. Our store has many unique and interesting items in several different categories from 35 years of our dealing and collecting antiques and collectables. Please look closely at the photos as they are an important part of my description of this item.
Everything appears to me to be original and intact, except for possibly the backing, which has probably been replaced. There is one chip or flake to the back side of the plaque that is not visible with the plaque in the frame see the last photo for a close-up of this, the chip is about at the 10:00 clock position on the plaque (left hand piece in the photo). Otherwise, I see no chips, flea bites, cracks, hairlines or repairs to the porcelain. There is some minor wear to the front of the plaque where it has rested in the frame that is not visible when the plaque is in the frame.
I will also mention is some tarnish to the metal frame as well as some light signs of use to the backside of the frame that are consistent with the age of the frame. There is also a bit of paper residue to the back side of the plaque. Please keep in mind the photos may be blown up at least 8-10 times normal, so anything you see will look 8-10 times bigger in the photos than it really is.
Please note: if you see a dark spot in the photos it is from my camera and is not a mark on the piece. It will be either just to the right of center towards the bottom or slightly above center on the right side of the photo. The visible part of the porcelain plaque itself in the frame is about 3.125 (7.9 cm) top to bottom by about 2.375 (6 cm) left to right. Overall, the frame is about 4.25 (10.8 cm) tall by about 3.5 (8.9 cm) wide and about.5 (1.3 cm) in overall thickness. About 4 ounces (133 grams) including the frame. On heavier items I will also offer a less expensive option, if available.
