Set of 12 Viennese Portrait Plates - Decorative Arts
Set of 12 Viennese Portrait Plates
A rare set of Portrait Plates, having finely painted individual portraits of ladies by Franz Dorfl, with elaborate raised-gold borders. Porcelain, Austrian (Vienna), c. 1902.
Portrait plates were extremely popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It is extremely rare to find such a large set. These would likely have filled a large cabinet, to be displayed as art objects in their own right and were never intended to be used as tabeware.
