Outstanding antique erotic enamel on copper plaque. An outstanding and large antique Erotic hand painted enamel on copper plaque of "the fisherman and the mermaid". This unusual plaque is very probably French and "Limoges Enamel". It is exquisitely painted and the coloring, from the deep cobalt blue background to the oranges and green of the mermaid tail is expertly enhanced by the " en grisaille" treatment of the flesh.The iconography is the story of a mermaid who lures a fisherman down to his death, in retribution for the death of her fish. The fisherman entwined with the siren/mermaid represents the seductive and destructive power of female sexuality. The pressure and weight of the bodies allegories the sensual yet deathly embrace. Even a casual observer understands the symbolism and allegory. The plaque dates from circa 1900 and its ebonized wood frame is probably original to the piece.
