This is a vertical rectangular porcelain tile with the original custom frame and signed by the artist on the painting. The tile is not marked as to the maker, however during this time period such tiles were mostly produced in Limoges, France, or Berlin, Germany.

The artist’s signature is “Bellona” and it is below the tail feathers of the bird.

Including the frame, the dimensions are 14” high and about 8” wide. The tile is about 11 ¾” by 6”.

The bird appears to be a small hawk with the predator beak, and it looks like a Winter Hawk, or Big Brown Jobber. It is perched on a tall stalk. This is a hawk with a habitat in North America, and if I identified the hawk correctly, it might indicate that the artist is American.

However, I am not a hawk expert. It is up to the buyer to determine the species and age. I only offer my best opinion.

The frame is wood and in good shape for its age. There is a small flake of varnish missing on the left vertical edge that you can see in one photo. There is handling and age wear. There are no chips or cracks. The frame is built to hold the tile firmly in place, but the tile can be removed.

The tile has no chips, cracks or crazing.
