This German Volkstedt jasperware plaque is marked 'Germany'. It also has a blue makers mark (volkstedt) but is hard to read.
This is a relief-moulded large plaque (tinted biscuit plaque) . The plaque features nude nymphs swimming in a wave of waters and also shows a picture of a large deer and a swan. Volkstedt tinted plaques are not often seen as mostly they are found in blue or green decorated. If you would like a link to a Christies auction showing tinted Volkstedt plaques please email me and I will email it to you. The price realized at Christies was over a $1,000 per plaque. This is a known Volkstedt pattern subject plaque, however, the mark is not clear as when it was stamped it came out blurry. This was made in the 1890's.
Someone has emailed me wondering how to hang this item without the original brass hanging fixture. You can hang this item using a replacement hanger, or you can use the hole in the back of this plaque to secure a small rope, or a metal rope to secure this item.
The size of this plaque is 10 l/2 inches by 8 1/4 inches. It is in perfect condition. No chips, cracks or repairs.
