Here is a striking Franz Anton Mehlem "Delft" blue & white, signed, rococo style hanging portrait wall plaque. We wish to thank a fellow Ruby Lane dealer for identifying the portrait as Frans Hals an Amsterdam artist.that lived in the late 1500s-early 1600s The plaque measures approx. 20" long, and 12 1/2" wide and dates from 1887-1920. The signature next to the portrait is difficult to read, but may be "V. Grotch", and on the back it appears the Delft artist may say "Jan Jainker". The condition is very good with colors still deep and vibrant with the exception of crazing some minor chipping and a possible repair at the peak (see pix). We are happy to accept lay-a-ways! We require a non-refundable 25% deposit within 10 days, and the balance to be paid in full within 30-60 days.
