This lovely plaque is in the most desireable of background colors - bright 'Wedgwood' blue. The 3-D cherub's leg sticks out above the surface with 5 perfect little toes. His arms are spread in utter joy as he jumps around in the clouds chasing butterflies. He has a beautiful, cheerful face.
The rim features baroque curlicues all around and this one hangs on the diagonal with a typical Volkstedt hanging ring. It is hallmarked with the Volkstedt sunburst mark and the word 'Germany' under it, both in blue.
The plaque measures 7 1/4" square and except for one little peak on the rim, the plaque is perfect (see black star alongside the chip which didn't become known until very close inspection). The price reflects this very minor imperfection.
This plaque dates from the late 1800s to around 1905.
As many of my repeat customers know, we specialize in these type of jasperware plaques so please make sure to look through our shop for several others still available for sale. The last photo shows a large (random) array of them just waiting to be plucked off the wall (although not all are still available for sale).
