This is a tin lithographed Vienna Art Plate of a lovely blonde woman with roses. According to the Hazelcorn Price Guide, this was manufactured by the Chas. W. Shonk Co. of Chicago around 1909. Their plates were called Royal Saxony Art Plates. Hazelcorn refers to her on page 37 as Jane.
The company usually had a lightly stamped red mark on the back, which sometimes faded. I don't see the stamp on the back of this one. It is shown on a Vienna Art Plate identification website (see Our Favorite Links) as No. 109 and is called Flower Girl.
The plate measures approximately 10 1/8". The colors are olive, lilac, rose and green. It is one of the plates that is harder to find.
Condition: It does have some scratching and crazing, consistent with its age. Please enlarge the photos.
