Antique KPM Porcelain Plaques Christopher Columbus in Chains Penitent Magdalene 2 KPM Porcelain Plaques - In very good condition. A handwritten letter acquired with the plaques may describe something about the owner's history. It is dated September 17, 1860. The frame, not the porcelain, on the top of Penitent Magdalene has a crack that does not got through to the back of the frame. The handwritten letter was found behind one of the frames and is included with the plaques. It is severely dry, cracked and crumbling. I did not try to remove it from the envelope to decipher. Photographed as is. Type: Oval framed KPM porcelain plaques. Details: Ornate oval gold frames. Original wood back with stenciled numbers covers the porcelain. Both frames measure 13" x 11". The porcelains measure 9" x 6.75". Plaque 1: Christopher Columbus in Chains, mid-to late 19th century after the painting by Gustave Wappers (Belgian, 1803-1874). Shows Columbus gazing intently at the viewer from his jail cell, unsigned by the artist unless I missed it but it does have the KPM impressed mark. No damage, Paint is in very good condition. No scratches or chips. Plaque 2: Penitent Magdalene, mid- to late 19th century, after Heinrich Friedrich Fuger (1751-1818). The scantily clad figure prone on the ground and reading a book, I found no artist's signature but there is an impressed KPM mark on the back as photographed. Hallmarked: As shown Will be professionally packed and shipped with insurance, delivery confirmation and your signature will be required upon delivery. Available for viewing.

We do our best to describe the condition of our items as carefully as possible and we post several photos of the actual item. Photos are magnified to show details and we include measurements for your review. MINT - Like new. Highly unusual to see this classification as by very definition antique and vintage items have either been displayed or handled in some way. Additionally, there is the natural process of time-wear. EXCELLENT - Outstanding condition. The best grade you can reasonably expect for antique/vintage items. No wear to the naked eye. VERY GOOD - We place most of our vintage and antique treasures in this category as most all antique and vintage items have some signs of use consistent with age if even only visible under 10x magnification. May have a small dent, ding, chip, light scuffing, yellowing, or plating loss. Any signs of wear would be minor compared to the overall integrity of the piece and would not detract from its beauty when displayed. More significant signs of wear on the back or undersides of a piece may be included in this category. GOOD - Perfectly acceptable and good for display or use, but signs of use described above are more significant and readily visible. May be missing a part or have some damage that can be replaced or repaired FAIR - Wear is severe and will need significant restoration or may be used for parts or scrap. POOR/SCRAP/RECYCLE - Good for some usable parts or for design muse, (inspiration, inspiration, up-cycling, re-cycling, crafting or scrap.) We do not attempt to clean, polish, repair or otherwise alter any of our vintage or antique items. Items may show a patina consistent with age. We sell our vintage items as acquired, as is. Sterling silver may show tarnish. Tarnish is not a defect, just a naturally occurring process on silver when exposed to air. Age/era is an estimation but represented to the best of our knowledge based on provenance or acquisition time frame. Size, shapes, color are approximate. Payment Details Without prior communication, payment is expected at time of purchase. 7% sales tax applies to sales in NJ (not applicable to clothing and shoes). Payments processed through PayPal must ship to the confirmed address on the payment receipt. Shipping Details Orders typically ship the business day after payment is received and cleared.
