In this beautifully painted porcelain plaque, a young woman in fine aristocratic clothing sits in a dark Renaissance style interior scene. She sits in a gold armchair, covered in ornate floral upholstery, stretching out her arm to pluck a rose from a bouquet of flowers on the table beside her. Behind her is a landscape painting with red velvet curtains drawn to the side, as well as a table piled with antique books.
The plaque is inscribed to the reverse with marks for KPM, and is held in a giltwood frame.
