A wonderful hand painted portrait plate of beautiful German or French noble lady, circa 1870-1890. The profile portrait captures the lady's beautiful fair complexion, pink cheeks, rosy lips, blue eyes and medium brown up-sweep hair neatly covered by her wide brimmed auburn hat with huge white ostrich plume. Around her neck is a wide gold and pearl encrusted necklace. The background color for the portrait is black and unfortunately the piece is unsigned by the artist. The porcelain blank is saucer-shaped, unmarked as to manufacturer and measures 4 1/2" across. The repousse brass frame has wide band of mythological figures, including Neptune, God of the Sea, along with other sea creatures and vegetation, as well as several bands of embossed rope, beads and scroll designs.. The frame measures 12" across and has an attached ring for hanging. There are no cracks, chips, or repairs; several light scratches in her hair, on her cheek and a more pronounced scratch by her mouth; several small paint flakes on her hat by the plume. These are not readily noticed unless examined up close.
