This is a great large porcelain plaque produced in France in the late 1800 - early 1900's. It features a man dressed in period attire standing in the woods. He is holding a tray, with four birds perched on the edges. There is game at his feet, including deer, rabbits, and ducks. Well blended, colorful scene covering the entire plaque. (Please excuse any reflection or glare seen in the pictures!) It is marked d'apres Manchard in the lower right corner, visible with the zoom feature in the pictures. The plaque itself measures 15" by 19 1/2", with an overall size of 19" by 22 1/2". It is hard to find early porcelain plaques this large! The gold frame with velvet liner is approximately 50-60 years old. There is a small piece of damage at the side of the frame. There are no markings on the back of the piece. The plaque has a few small scratches in the lower left corner, near the marking. Otherwise, it is in good condition with no chips, cracks, or repairs.
