An antique 19th century French Limoges enamel on copper plaque. Stunning in its impressive size and outstanding craftsmanship, the plaque features a lady framed by arabesque motifs and heavy Rococo scrollwork. In grisaille with spectacular contrasting lights and darks to create impressive detail, depth and dimension. Accented in gold gilt highlights. Depicting a lady in a gown reminiscent of the Renaissance, seated and with hands clasped in prayer. The stonework and columns rendered in the background are beautifully done. Portrayed in the stonework is a small cherub, perhaps an alter to Venus, or perhaps in prayer for a loved one. Signed Boyer in gold gilt. Housed within a hand crafted frame, possibly later, with brass loop for hanging display. In very good antique condition. There is some chips to the enamel located at the upper left hand corner. Some wear to those gilt painted highlights a expected with age. Measures 17 5/8" x 8 1/2" width
