It looks like she's pinning him with the final rose, a gesture that says 'you're the one'. Very romantic.
This antique decorative plate was hand-painted and is signed by the artist ....FLORENCE BROWN. There's also an eagle mark and the letters G.T. with another word we can't make out. We suspect this plate was made in Germany.
It measures 11 3/4 inches across the pierced handles. The color is a soft minty green, highlighted with a gold wash. The hand-painted art is 'framed' in raised gild beads all around. The Edwardian gentleman looks a bit stunned but is bracing himself with his walking stick cane.
The plate is in excellent vintage condition with NO cracks, repairs, crazing or things that don't belong there. One squiggly line at right of 6 o'clock is a faint drizzle of paint under the glaze. One tiny glaze pop is between their heads.
Romance is definitely in the air and on this plate.
