Woman With Cherub

Stunning Victorian German painting on porcelain.  There is written script on the back in German but I can’t make it out (see photo).  It features a woman reclining in bed holding a winged cherub.  There is a lush pillow under her head, curtains in the backdrop and roses on the bedspread.  She is wearing a cream colored night gown with her lower body covered with a lavender blanket.  The blanket has enamel gilt highlights.  It is housed in a period fancy carved original gilt wood frame.  Such an interesting subject and so intricately painted!     Circa:  1850.    Dimensions:   15.5″ H   x   11″ W. (frame).   7.5″ H   x   5″ W (porcelain)   Condition:  Painting and porcelain are in excellent condition.   The frame has the original gilt and has some normal chips and wear consistent with age.   Price:  $1495
