This one-of-a-kind Victorian framed wall plaque begins with a 12 inch Mt Washington opal or satin glass cupped charger plate, usually painted with scenes or portraits and framed. This one is hand painted with a lovely unsigned pond and waterlilies scene and applied porcelain bisque girl and boy half-figures. They were attached at the same time the painting was done, not added some time later.
The bisque figures are likely nineteenth century German, possibly French. There is damage to the fingers of three of the four raised hands only, including an old repair to the boy's wrist. The back of the glass plate has old adhesive stains, which I did not to attempt to clean. The 16-1/2 inch carved wood gilt frame is likely original. It has a few minor cracks and chips to the leaf scroll decoration. The last picture shows the back of the frame which still has remnants of a glued fabric backing which once secured the charger.
