Here is a delightful portrait of a mother holding her child in a garden landscape, standing next to an antique Roman column. It might be a soup plate since it’s quite a bit deeper than a regular dinner plate. It comes from a dinner service that was hand-decorated with many similar views of Italian characters. The plate is nine and a half inches across and has a very faint hairline running from the rim at seven o’clock and partly around the well, not affecting the decoration in the center. The chain link border at the rim and the trailing vine in gilt compete the attractive design.
