This unusually shaped plaque features two angels cavorting in the clouds. One is playing a violin, and the other cymbals.
Look closely at their faces. Just beautiful!
One photo shows a black star next to a wing where the tip is broken. Otherwise in excellent condition. Still valuable because it displays beautifully and the broken wing is not easy to see when it is hanging on the wall.
8 1/4" x 6 3/4".
The back side bears the Volkstedt sunburst hallmark (ca. 1896-1905) and there is the sturdy hanging ring typical on Volkstedt pieces.
Often mistaken for Wedgwood, jasperware plaques like this were made to emulate Wedgwood jasperware. Because many of the best Volkstedt ones feature flowing cherubs and female figures, they are considered by many to be more beautiful than Wedgwood's!
