This superb porcelain plaque by the German maker KPM is painted with an image of a woman dressed in Orientalist costume. The woman, her body tilted towards us, stands with her hands on a water pitcher. The manner of painting is exceptionally fine, with painterly brushstrokes used to render a variety of materials. The plaque is held in a velvet mounted giltwood frame and is marked to the reverse with the marks for KPM.
