Seller: classicfantasyartworks (2.996) 100%, Location: Ocala, Florida, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 133046282140 German Cabinet Maker - Circa 1870 "The Wandering Prince" -- Rare & Unique - Hand Painted - White Marble Plaque - Dark Brown Color -- This fantastic, one-of-a-kind, artwork is directly hand-painted, and not printed, onto a thick, heavy, pure-white, marble plaque, and features an illustration of a popular, recurring, character from European children's stories and fables, a Wandering Prince. Always young, handsome, and virtuous, if not brash and prone to acting...ah, like a Prince, at times, this heroic character represents the upper class virtues of education, wise judgement, and robust bravery. Here we see the Prince, disguised as a peasant, as he leaves his Castle behind in search of a virtuous woman to fall in love with...and wed...among the common people of his domain. Perhaps he shall meet the daughter of some Wood Cutter, whose beauty and grace captures his heart, without the maiden knowing of his royal birth. This artwork is painted in a very dark brown medium. This marble artwork was removed from an antique wooden chest, where it was flush mounted to its top, along with other porcelain plaques, each featuring storybook characters. The old chest this marble plaque came from had completely degraded and fallen apart, leaving only its immortal stone artworks for us to save. Imagine this wonderful plaque properly framed! We are also offering a matching tile, which displays the fable character, "The Wood Cutter's Daughter." Please examine the high-resolution scans of this tile to determine the exact state of this wonderful tile.
