Antique German porcelain Lithophane panel light fixture or candle holder. Incised PPM made by Prensaich Porzellan Germany c1860 - 70. A lithophane is an etched or molded artwork in thin very translucent porcelain that can only be seen clearly when back lit with a light source. Some panels are marked KPM. 4 have KPM, PPM is on the one that looks like Romeo & Juiet, & I think it's on the 1 with the woman by the window (this one is harder to tell In the mark). Very good condition, no damage. The lithophanes measure 6 1/4 x 4 3/4". The decorative metal embossed tin fixture is 10 1/4 x 8 3/4" diameter. It is not wired, can be hung over an existing fixture or a candle placed on the frame inside. It has 2 chains. This was purchased from a high end estate.
