A beautiful late 19th Century copy of 'Psyche With an Urn' after the original picture by Robert Julius Beyschlag. The porcelain plaque is framed in its likely original gilt timber frame which has some minor losses commensurate with age. The plaque is in exceptional condition with no chips, cracks or flaws. The original picture was painted by the German artist Robert Julius Beyschlag (1838-1903) in the 19th century, with this plaque and frame dating to just prior to The Turn Of The Century. To the rear of the porcelain is written in blue ink by hand, 'Psyche mil der Urne mach Beyschlag' along with a mark saying 'MADE IN GERMANY' which refers only to the porcelain plaque. There is also a paper 'stamp' style label which is in tact and contains what is likely an inventory number in black ink. This exceptional porcelain copy of Beyschlag's famed painting is an absolute treat and a truly marvellous antique.
