Absolutely Exquisite Hand Painted Portrait Plate featuring a beautiful Young Victorian Lady. A portrait of a Lady wearing a Touring Hat exquisitely captures female fashion from the late 19th and early 20th century. The wider brim, lavishly embellished with a silk band, was a natural design progression to accommodate the fuller hairstyles of the era. The hand-held monocle hanging from her neck was a symbol of upper-class, the quintessential victorian affectation. Her beautiful lace dress and soft beige Victorian hat certainly would catch the eye of any passerby. The wild pink rose garden backdrop creates an jaw dropping effect! Dated 1882 and signed by the very talented unknown artist RB.
