Lover`s Eye Art-Nouveau - Altered Antique Porcelain Plate

"Eyes lover" or "Portraits of only one eye"

Although the center is an eye, often represented with eyebrows and eyelashes, a lock of hair, sideburns suggestion or bridge of the nose pointing to the identity of the owner but never revealed.

The story goes that these images became fashionable when the future King George IV of England fell in love with a married Catholic woman, which did not make the things easy, besides needing the consent of the king to marry that obviously not obtain, lose the right to the succession. Nevertheless they married and although the marriage was declared invalid, continued their idyll.
It is in this context that the then still prince, sent him a picture of his eye, painted by the miniaturist Richard Cosway. She, meanwhile, charged the same painter another lover's eye for him.

Vintage porcelain plate of unknown provenance with silver edges and decorations.

Limited Edition. 4 units.

Boxmark: --

Size: 12,6cm Ø - 5" Ø

I have applied on it a process of heat transfer followed by high temperature kilning so that the design is attached to the porcelain.

All the plates have a rear hook to hang directly on the wall without other support or if you prefer you can place it on a stand on shelves or tables.

Created for decorative use.

Wipe clean, do not immerse in water.

We carry out special assignments.
