I bought this gorgeous ORIGINAL c. 1890's/1900 bronze wall plaque as a Christmas present for my wife, and love it myself as well. It measures an impressive 8 3/4 inches (22 cm.) and is marked on the back "GESETZLICH GESCHUTZ" and with the number 2059. It weighs almost 3 pounds! I'm guessing it's possibly Austrian, or maybe German manufacture?
The fourth picture is another version of the same exact plaque that's partially "colored" and clearly signed by Mucha on the lower left shoulder (it can be seen if you enlarge the scan), The link to this was most kindly provided by czechglass5 (see her comment with link below).
Aside from 2 very minor dents (at the bottom at about 6:25 and 6:40), this plaque is in fantastic condition, and my wife and I feel very fortunate to have acquired it...!
Thanks for looking!
