Research has been difficult on this one. It is perhaps French or German and probably Victorian. It is done with exquisite detail and vibrant colors. The portrait plate is 6 inches in diameter with the brass frame extending 16 inches in diameter. It has a permanent hanger built into the back side of the frame. The brass is well patinated and the portrait is stunning although there is slight age related wear. The brass frame is strongly embossed and the painted plate is held in with a flanged edge which is part of the frame.
