Antique Art Nouveau Jasperware Plaque Bare Breasted Beauty with Lily
This plaque shows a bare-breasted woman reaching upwards and holding onto the bent stem of a flower with her right hand while her upreaching left arm terminates with her left hand holding on to a 3-D lily blossom that emerges from the flat surface of the plaque. Wonderful! That right hand really seems to emerge from the plaque and the delicate fingers wrap around that stem!
Make sure to see her 'sister' plaque (twt3168) listed separately.
There are no maker's marks evident on back or front of the plaque. Clearly of Volkstedt Germany quality, it also bears a Volkstedt-like metal hanging ring (slightly overpainted with white paint). It is notable, however, that our research found pair of these in sepia tones sold through Skinner's several years ago and they had the Volkstedt hallmark.
This plaque as well as the others we have are in excellent condition with no damages whatsoever. The last photo shows this plaque along with one of the other three. The color blue is a cross between a 'prussian' blue and a wedgwood blue.
It is 13" high not counting the hanging ring and is 6 1/2" across the widest part.
