Antique Papier Mache Portrait Plate 19th Century Fine Decorative Paper Mache ArtAntique Papier Mache Portrait Plate 19th Century Fine Decorative Paper Mache ArtAntique Papier Mache Portrait Plate 19th Century Fine Decorative Paper Mache Art

Offering for sale a lovely antique decorative plate or dish circa 1890 or earlier, of papier mache. It is a rare to find and beautiful portrait plate ! The plate is gently curved, black background color with gently scalloped edges and gold painted scallops. IN the center is a portrait cameo of a lovely lady in what looks like Middle Eastern attire; this leads us to believe this was an English piece with India influence. I am assuming the portrait cameo is applied, a fine print applied like a decal and then glazed over ; this was done on a lot of the old paper mache items. This lovely piece measures 6 & 1/2" across and is in very good condition with no cracks or repairs.There is a small ding on the top which looks like a chip which may have been repainted, and on the underside we see the common surface cracks as expected on old papier mache, but only a few; it is really in very nice condition.
