The painting on this is so fine, and so understated that you really have to look closely to capture the quality of the work. Absolutely one of the nicest hand painted plates I have ever had.....but due to it being a man, it is not as pricey as if it were a beautiful half nude princess.....that example painted by a well know top flight maker such as Royal Vienna, Wagner, or similar would run well over 2000 dollars. First notice the hands and then the shading and folds in the drape on the window. More of a genre type painting, but of finest quality. I believe the contents of the spilled pipe contain a signature, but I cannot make it out. This easily competes with any make artist or porcelain decorator of late 19th century, which is the height of this style painting. Measuring 9 3/4" diameter and dating to about c1880 or so. Titled on back as shown. One of the finest you will ever see.....it is different. This piece blows me away with a loop......the painting is so fine!!!!!! This has been reduced over 20% and the painting is great!
