This very large Volkstedt plaque is very three dimensional and features a semi-nude, diaphonously clad woman along with a tambourine-playing cherub!

A couple of years ago we had this same plaque (in perfect condition) which sold for $850.00. This one, while extremely beautiful and very displayable, does have a couple of flaws described below. Thus the lower price.

The plaque features the baroque, cartouche-y borders often found on Volkstedt pieces and what highly enhances the charm of them. The figures are beautifully modelled and their faces are splendid. The woman's extended leg features a sandal and the details of it and her toes are very distinctly sculpted. One of her breasts is bare. Her gown extends to the bottom tip and actual weaves through the curlicue on the bottom!

The plaque measures 13 1/2" high and is 7 1/4" wide by 2" deep! It is hallmarked on the reverse with the Volkstedt starburst mark. It dates from ca. 1900.

In the photos you will see black stars near the 2 small rim chips. Please note that neither of those chips are visible from the front when hung on the wall. The more significant flaw is the two missing tips of the womans right hand (the one holding the hand of the cherub). As explained above, the price has been adjusted to take these facts into consideration.
