One of the best we've had and in very fine condition for one of these plaques that is over 100 years old! Ca.1890s-1906. Also, in the most popular color way - white on (bright deep) blue.
It is done in high relief with an exceptional art nouveau, figural floral border. The beautiful lady wears a headband of flowers and is gracefully strumming a harp. Beneath her feet is a large dragonfly.
The plaque is large - it measures approx. 13" x 10 1/2".
One of the photos shows a black star near the tip of one of the top flower petals that does have a flea bite chip. Not noticeable when hanging!! VERY minor.
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!
