Very rare and prodigious antique Wedgwood light blue jasperware framed plaque with white "Sacrifice Figures" relief. There are at least two major repairs. Made a long time ago. Which could be clearly seen by a plaque color "mismatch" (lighter areas) on the posted pics. Plaque might have been broken in two places.Also, we noticed a small chip in one corner pic. Although it is clear that the plaque was taken out of the frame (perhaps a few times) in the past, we have not examined it, and are offering it for you in the exact the same condition we bought it years ago.
The frame (looks as mahogany wood) is antique, but is likely not as old as the plague. We think the plaque was framed after the repairs, but cannot say it for certain. Frame has some ware, which we have captured on many pics. Please note the plaque is large and very heavy.
All of the above mentioned imperfections do not really take much out of the plaque overall appearance. It is a truly unique and magnificent eye-catching. This is one of the largest plaques we have ever owned. Would you please review the pics for more details, and let us know if you'd like to see more - we would be happy to share. Questions are encouraged and welcome.
Plaque is truly unusual piece and we would like to make sure that we provide you with all the information we have. Frame: 28 3/4" x 12 3/4" x 1. Sight area: 24 3/4 x 8 3/4. As we have not taken the plaque out, there is no information about the marks. We believe it was manufactured in the late 1700s, but cannot say it for.
