This is a colorful Royal Saxony lithographed tin metal art plate, manufactured by the Chas. W. Shonk Co. of Chicago, Illinois. According to the Hazelcorn Guide to Tin Vienna Art Plates, it dates to around 1907. It is referred to as a keyhole style because it has the illusion of looking at her through a keyhole.
Although five companies manufactured these lovely lithograph tin plates, most were made by H.D. Beach under the name Vienna Art Plate. According to Hazelcorn, the term "Vienna Art Plate" has become the generic name to describe all of them.
On the back, it has the No. 106 and the name Phantasie, along with the Royal Saxony logo. The border colors are gold and red. It measures approximately 10 1/4".
Condition: It has some surface wear and scratches, primarily around the edges. As can be seen in the photo, it retains its color and beauty.
