Wonderful blue ground jasperware plaque with a central figure of a cavalier who has dismounted from his horse, and appears to be trumpeting his arrival to a distant castle on a hill in the background. The frame of the plaque is a swirl of rocaille scrolling and flourishes surrounding this scene with most of the fancy work at the top. The plaque has one chip on one of the little scrolls at the top but is otherwise in excellent condition. Quite the most charming and unusual of these plaques that I have had the pleasure of presenting. Most feature maidens, cherubs, and courting couples or goddesses. The size is 6.25" high and approx. 5" wide. There is a small impressed no. 7 on the back and series of small numbers on one side as shown in one of the photos. No name or other identifying mark so it could be any of the jasperware makers of the 19th or early 20th century.
