This antique German jasperware plaque in a light olive green with beautifully sculpted white elements is a knockout.

The composition shows a diaphonously draped beautiful woman surrounded by cupid carrying a torch (upper right) and she and two cupids riding the waves on the back of a 'dolphin'.

The plaque is signed in the lower left with impressed initials HR. On the reverse there are two impressed numbers. The numbers probably indicate size and mold type.

Certainly of the quality of Volkstedt, probably the best of the German makers of these type of plaques, this one was probably intended to be framed. Instead of a central top hanging ring, it has a shallow rim with small holes pierced that would adhere it to a frame. Alternatively though, a wire could be added through the hole on the top edge so it could be hung.

The condition is superb. No damages whatsoever to anything - all fingers and toes are beautifully in place.

The plaque measures 12 1/8" x 6 5/8" x 3/8". Please note that these type of plaques are often mistaken for Wedgwood. Jasperware plaques like this one 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 even more beautiful than Wedgwood's!

Also please note that another plaque of almost the same size with the same woman is listed separately (item #3350). The background color is different but otherwise they were clearly both made in Germany and signed in the left corner "HR".
