Mirror Frame w/ Cherubs

This is a superb wall mirror frame made by Meissen around the mid to late 19th century. Not a super rare model but still very nice with the two cherubs sitting on top holding a floral garland in between them and the colorful frame with the laurel leaf garland and pink bow along the bottom edge. Just a cheerful piece to hang on your wall :) These usually have wooden backs but that is gone here and been replaced by some thing paper with tape to hold the replacement mirror in place. Three pieces of cork along the back edge to give it the right distance to the wall to look straight since the wings of the cherubs stick out a bit, too. One could easily make a new wooden backing to it which would be held in place with four screws that go into the holes on the frame. The frame is in good condition with just a tiny chip to a berry of the laurel wreath, the pink bow has both loops missing, some small chips to the flower garland between the two cherubs, one wing chipped on the tip, a small chip to the tip of the pink cloth of the one cherub and a wing on the blue cherub has been glued back in place which is not easy to see. Some chipping to the top inside of the back as shown. All these issues are towards the back of the piece and is displays superbly! The frame is marked with the under glaze blue crossed swords mark on top between the cherubs as shown - first choice. The entire porcelain piece is about 13 inches tall, 9.75 inches wide and 2.5 inches deep so one of the larger versions of this style. Really a stunning piece!
