Charles Joseph Chaplin: Antique porcelain plaque, artist signed and dated.

Depicting young woman, partially nude, with crying cupid at her side.

In original antique gilt wood (gesso) frame, sealed at the back, so whether it is KPM or Meissen or another manufacture is not clear, but the quality is the best of the best.

It is either by or, after the work by Charles Joshua Chaplain (1825 - 1891) - see signature.

Measurements:frame is approx 16 1/4 X 22 1/4; Plaque 8 X 13 3/4 (sight).

The plaque depicts a young girl with ribbons in her blond hair and a blue satin sash around her waist.

The painting is superb - see wonderful details of face, hair, fingers, jewellery and body.

The painting is signed on top and may refer to the identity of the sitter.

Marie d'Aumont; next line reads d'ap chaplin and then the date 1879.

Similar works by Charles Joshua Chaplin eg Roses de Mai, 1877 shows a girl in a very similar pose, almost identically dressed (undressed?) from the opposite direction.

The plaque comes in what appears to be it's original gilt wood frame, which is quite beautiful in it's own right.

The outer part of the frame (not seen in pictures), has a few negligible losses and there are some very minor age cracks in the gilding (see pictures).

Plaque is in very good condition with no damage/losses of any sort.
