This extremely large Faience pottery plaque is the epitome of the "Aesthetic Movement" style at it's best! Thick impasto enamels create a 3-dimensional effect of flowers rising out of the shaded brown background. The "Japonesque" full moon reserve is hand painted with a reflective lake scene adding to the intrigue of the decoration. This is a heavy piece as is shown in image 8, designed to support the weight and hang perfectly. Excellent overall condition, some crazing typical of pottery, a few glaze chips only on the reverse side.
