A lovely Antique (circa late 1800s) European Plaque depicting a Lady with a Baby. The Plaque is hand painted in jewel tone colors, it is unsigned, I would guess this is English because it is made of ironstone, there is just a little trace of an old paper label on the back. There is a dark ring around the edge from a previous mat & frame, it was never meant to be displayed without one, see photos. The Plaque has lovely attention to detail and measure 10 1/2" in diameter. It is in good to fair condition with no chips, cracks, hairlines or repairs. It displays nicely but does have some dark scratches on the dove and the bottom of the gargoyle lamp that will not come off, see closeup photo. The Plaque would be perfect in any antique decor, it is a lovely subject matter.
