Large Royal Vienna framed charger - 'Cimon And Iphigenia'


A large and impressive 19th century Royal Vienna hand painted porcelain framed charger titled: "Cimon And Iphigenia" after Peter Paul Rubens (the painting is currently in the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna, Austria).
Cimon, a handsome but coarse and uneducated youth, fell in love with Iphigenia (or Efigenia) and married her. The effects of love were beneficial and turned him into an educated and graceful man. This is an improving story from Boccaccio's 'Decameron'.
