Beautiful porcelain portrait plate of a female dressed in very sober attire, her head and neck entirely covered with a white scarf and symbols stitched across the front near her forehead. Around her neck is a heavy gold chain and cross, and she is wearing her velvet maroon-colored robe. The background, browns and blacks, is somber as well. Surrounding the plate is a metal frame, with relief decoration on the border. Cherubs facing central medallions alternate with a Renaissance type face mask. There is no mark on the back of the plate. The porcelain plate is approx. 6" in diameter and the frame is approx. 11" in diameter.
