French portrait plate in ormolu frame titled Provence

This is a nice portrait plate titled Provence. It features the portrait of a woman in a purple outfit. There are nice details in her face and hair. The portrait is bordered with gold trim and four gold fleur de lis. I have included close up pictures of the details in her face to show it was hand painted. The only part that may have been transfered is the gold decoration. The openwork on the plate and the ornate metalwork really accent the piece. The metal rim is detailed with grapes and leaves. Scrolls and flowers accent the legs and feet. Some plaster of paris is visible on the underside of the plate only, where is secures into the metal. The plate measures 9 3/4" wide and stands 4 1/2" tall. It is in good condition with no chips, cracks, or repairs.
