The central portrait depicts a woman kneeling to burn incense to a Greco-Roman winged deity. Smoke fills the room as the woman covers her head with shawl before the small, but majestic statue. It is quite unusual to find a majolica glaze with a neoclassical theme (many times neoclassical motifs are found on jasperware). Artists would stamp a graphic that they would later glaze over to create stunning plaques like this one. The back of the piece contains the Wedgwood mark. The piece dates to c. 1889. Wedgwood is one of the oldest continuous running potteries in England. The company was started by Josiah Wedgwood in 1759 and has remained a powerhouse in fine pottery ever since. Wedgwood pieces are highly recognizable and highly collectible.
