Lot No. 0586
Exceptional KPM porcelain plaque depicting a seasoned noble woman, her head covered with scarf and hood, her shoulder fashionably caressed by a light color fur dappled with dark spots. She has an imposing queenly gaze that appears to survey the room, her face befitted with a respected life worn appearance. Artist signed “H. St.” in the left corner. The 12 inch by 15 inch porcelain is surrounded with a maroon velvet mat tucked within a 19 3/4 inch by 22 3/4 inch gold wood frame. The plaque bears the impressed “KPM” mark, the scepter logo and the letter H on the back. A brass plaque attacked to the front the frame reads “Portrait of an Old Woman, Balthaser Danner, 1685-1749”. Impressive and compelling portrait. Excellent beautiful condition.
