Exquisitely hand painted antique porcelain plaque of birds around a nest with little blue eggs. So beautifully painted and detailed, with pink roses and background foliage ~ simply divine! The unusually shaped and embellished antique oak frame measures 9-3/4 by 6-3/4 inches, and the oval plaque measures 5 by 3-5/8 inches. The plaque fits perfectly in the opening, so I believe this frame is the original. In a few of the pictures the plaque had shifted over slightly. It is held in place with old nails. The artist's signature is on the lower right beneath the branch. I can't decipher the handwriting. The frame is in lovely condition with o few age-related cracks in the ornate border and a flat area in the upper left corner. The plaque is perfect with no chips or any damage and does not have a factory mark on the back. My flash lightened the colors a bit. This treasure came from an old high-end estate.
