This plaque e shows the bare-breasted woman reaching upwards and holding onto the corners of her see-through garment. She coyly looks over her right shoulder while doing this.
She is posted 'en pointe' - on tippy toes emerging from a fully opened water lily blossom.
The top tip of the border is topped by a cattail and right below that some shaggy seed heads of the border reeds. Clearly a water scene.
Make sure to see her 'sister' plaques listed separately (the last photo shows this one alongside the other recently listed one item #3167).
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). Our research found that a pair of these in sepia tones and framed, sold through Skinner's several years ago, and they had the Volkstedt hallmark.
This plaque as well as the other is in excellent condition with no damages whatsoever.
It is 13" high not counting the hanging ring. 6 1/2" across the widest part.
