Antique Art Nouveau Jasperware Plaque Bare Breasted Beauty with Lily

We are so fortunate now to have 3 of these plaques! Each one shares some common elements although no two are alike. The borders are similarly shaped yet very different. Each features long leafy edges which are done in three dimensional form and emerge from the surface of the background. Each features a contrasting beautiful long-haired woman who is barely clad in a diaphonously draped cloth. Sometimes she holds on to the corners of the cloth and sometimes it is allowed to flow easily around her legs. Her long tresses flow around her.

This one shows the bare-breasted woman reaching upwards and holding onto the bent stem of a flower with her right hand while her upreaching left arm terminates with her left hand holding on to a 3-D lily blossom that emerges from the flat surface of the plaque. Wonderful! That right hand really seems to emerge from the plaque and the delicate fingers wrap around that stem!

Make sure to see her 'sister' plaques listed separately.

There are no maker's marks evident on back or front of the plaque. Clearly of Volkstedt Germany quality, it also bears a Volkstedt-like metal hanging ring (slightly overpainted with white paint).

This plaque as well as the others we have are in excellent condition with no damages whatsoever. The last photo shows this plaque along with one of the other three. The color blue is a cross between a 'prussian' blue and a wedgwood blue.

It is 13" high not counting the hanging ring and is 6 1/2" across the widest part.
