This charming shield-shaped hand painted porcelain wall plaque features a Bluebird motif. The well executed image depicts a male and female Bluebird perched on a forked branch of a gnarled tree. The female is at the top of the branch and looks down at her male companion who is painted in profile. As seen in the accompanying photographs their detailed plumage is colorful and stands out against the light background. The image also includes thin delicate branches bearing foliage in shades of green and peach. The edges of the plaque are painted in a khaki hue which complements the colors found in the artwork on the face of the piece.
The porcelain plaque is in excellent original condition with no chips, cracks or repairs. The image bears the artist signature at the lower right which appears to read "Larue". The back of the plaque is unmarked and has a foot rim that has been factory pierced with two holes so the piece can be suspended from a wall. The holes are currently threaded with a knotted shoelace. The plaque measures 10.25" by 7.5" and is 0.875" deep. The piece weighs in at 1lb.
This artist signed porcelain wall plaque displays beautifully and is ready to hang on receipt. The piece could also be placed in an easel and showcased on a table or shelf. A lovely and appealing vintage find!
