A very pretty antique hand painted porcelain plaque. The plaque is painted with excellent attention to detail and depicts a stately Woman with curly hair, a lace collar and a large brooch. The Plaque is signed on the lower left "Otto Eckardt, Dresden", Eckardt was a well known miniature artist who painted many prominent people, he painted for KPM and also had students that studied under him. This fine example would have been a custom order, it measures 8 1/2" high x 7 3/4" wide including the frame, the plaque itself measures 6" x 4 3/4". The plaque is marked on the back with impressed numbers 464 or something similar and the artist's name which is misspelled. The Porcelain Plaque is in very good overall condition, the frame has restorations and was repainted at some time, see photos. The lovely lady would be perfect in an antique Miniature or Porcelain Plaque collection.
