This is one of a pair of mid-century plaques, the other also listed today. This stunning copper plate image of a Chinese girl crafted by Wanda Irwin of Inglewood, CA, in 1948, uses a reed mat and simulated bamboo frame to elaborate on the Oriental theme. The copper plate utilizes red and black painted or enameled elements such as the hair ornament, hair, and lips, earrings, and dress to enhance the design. The framed size of this decorative accessory is 11.5" x 13", and the image size is 5" x 7". A printed label on the reverse identifies the piece as having been produced by Wanda Irwin for Philip Irwin Company. These metal plaques capture the essence of the mid-century modern design movement. There is a bit of streaking in the mat on this piece probably due to age.
