Antique Tricolor Jasperware Plaque Romantic Couple with PomPom Trees
Every now and then we come across one of these tricolor plaques with what we refer to as 'pompom' trees forming the border. Often they depict couples in a romantic pose. Here they are taking a stroll down a group of steps arm in arm as he serenades her and she peers deeply into his eyes There is even an accompanying flying swallow near the bottom right corner.
It is in very good condition with the smallest and most minor of chips along the leafy tree edges. Not visible from the front and barely so from the sides or back. It measures 7" x 5 1/4".
Tricolor jasperware is quite rare and desireable. Here the colors are medium olive green, lavender (or llac), and white.
On the reverse, the number 08 is impressed and along the top, back edge the numbers 3369 are impressed. Very possible Schafer & Vater, and very possible the '08' is a date stamp for 1908.
Usually, we will include a photo array showing how these variously colored plaques display together, but we ran short of space as we are only able to post up to 9 photos. You can see our other jasperware plaques simply by searching our shop site with the word 'jasperware'.
