Guest Book

This porcelain wall plaque was produced in Europe in the late 19th century. From the style and composition, we think it was probably Bohemian or Austrian. There are only a couple of incised numbers on the top of the plaque. It measures 10 1/2 inches in diameter. Most people attribute jasperware to Wedgwood, the most famous producer of this style of porcelain, but many other companies produced similar wares. This plaque has a combination of biscuit and glazed porcelain. The decorator selectively glazed areas and left other parts without glaze. The plaque is highly decorative with elaborate ornamentation. The girl in the center of the plaque is dressed in the high style of the day. There is great delicacy to the three-dimensional design. Incredibly, all of it is original and intact. This wonderful plaque is in excellent condition.
