    I have this beautiful KPM plaque of the Penitent Mary Magdalene. Or at least I think it is. It measures 5 x 6 7/8 inches and is stamped on the back with the letter 'K' and some other markings. Is it authentic if it doesn't have the KPM scepter mark? Any insight is appreciated!

      No, it would be considered in the style of or Manner of KPM. It is a 19th Century piece. Is it signed by artist on front? I see intails on back, could be artist. Heres an example:

      Aha. Makes sense. No, I don't see any signature on the front anywhere. Still a pretty old piece. The plaque shown in that listing you posted is nice too. Thanks for the information. Susan
