Austrian c1904 Victoria Schmidt Beauty and Prudence Decorative Plate
Decorative antique wall plate by Victoria Schmidt & Co. of Austria, its featured scene styled after Beauty Directed by Prudence rejects with Scorn the Solicitations of Folly as depicted by Angelica Kauffman. (Angelica Kauffman is a name occasionally found as Kauffmann or Kaufman.)
Dating to the early 1900s, this decorative wall plate is in excellent display condition — no nicks, chips, or cracks.
Measures a respectable 9-3/4 inch in diameter with a curved shallow 1 inch bowl-type form.
Perfect as a cabinet display, this beauty is also ready to hang on the wall if desired, with the wiring still intact. (I've left the remnants of some original paper on the reverse as well, which you can of course remove, if desired.)
