This lovely plaque measures 9 1/2" x 14". The image in high relief is of a classic couple in a romantic landscape with doves overhead. The original paint (subdued colors) is in excellent condition. The edge frames the painting and is gilded. There is a chain on the back as well as an attached easel. Therefore, it may be hung or stood on a table-top. It is clearly marked B & H 1823. This is a number and identifies the maker as Bradley & Hubbard. The plaque dates to the 1890's. Excellent condition with oxidation to the gilded frame and minor rubs to the high relief points. Note: i have been told this depicts "Faust & Margaret in the Garden" and is based on a painting or drawing which was created in Germany.
