Plaque with the Battle of the Amazons

Painted porcelain plaques fired together with their frames are rare. While they occur with some frequency in earthenware, only a very few porcelain factories produced these kinds of little ‘paintings’. This depiction is based on a painting by Peter Paul Rubens. It is a spectacular jumble of fighting female warriors (the Amazons) and Greek soldiers under the command of Theseus.
