A superb late 19th Century picture of a young Jesus Christ in its original gilt timber frame. Hand-painted on porcelain the wonderful image is signed 'Wagner' which leads us to believe it is German in origin. This particular image is taken from 'Christ in The Temple' by Heinrich Hofmann which was first painted in 1881. We can therefore date this picture to post 1881 however believe it to be painted before the turn of the century. The condition of the picture is excellent for its age and appears to be in its original untouched state, including the frame and backing material. A wonderful example of the hand painted portraits on porcelain coming our of Europe during the mid to late 19th century.
