This plaque has an ornate, light pink border featuring foliate designs with berries and scrolls. The subject - a beautiful young woman is kneeling on the ground smelling a flowering bush while being serenaded by an adorable angel playing a mandolin. There is also a hovering bird nearby and even a couple of butterflies overhead!
The plaque is in excellent condition with no damages whatsoever. It has no mark but twt2681 is stamped 'Germany' on the reverse. This plaque is done in the manner of Volkstedt or Schafer & Vater. We have had this plaque and its mate before.
It measures approx. 7 1/4" x 5 3/8". The thickest part measures 1 3/4" (at the top). It has holes for hanging (currently there is a sturdy string that allows hanging immediately).
One of the last few photos shows a grouping of jasperware plaques in several different colors, size, and shapes. It is shown to give you an idea of how wonderfully they can be mixed and matched to create an extraordinary display.
The next-to-last photo shows the three color variations we have listed separately (assuming they are still available). The are item twt3047 and twt2681.
The last photo shows this plaque along side its mate with slightly different color variation. That plaque may still be available as well (twt3562).
