Absolutely beautiful hand painted German porcelain plaque depicting Ruth. Expertly painted in soft muted colors, and signed in the lower right hand side by Wagner. The plaque is round and is surrounded by a gilt bronze garland frame. The frame is in 2 pieces: a circle that surrounds the plaque, with flowers at the bottom, and a 'v' shaped hanger, consisting of flowers and a bow with a ring on the back, that attaches to the circle for hanging. Unfortunately, one of the hooks on the hanger has broken off. It could be repaired. Or, there are 2 loops on the circular part of the frame that would accommodate a ribbon, cord or chain for hanging.
The quality of the painting on this plaque by Wagner is exquisite.
Period: c. 1880
Measurements: the plaque itself is 4" round - the hanger and frame are 7 1/2" long
Condition: the plaque is in perfect condition - the frame hanger has a broken hook
