An arts crafts “Cleopatra” enamel plaque

This plaque appears to depict a mythical Cleopatra against a stunning smoke filled red pink background. The plaque is in the style of Alexander Fisher but its maker is unknown.  I believe it  can be attributed to George Pitkethly, a British teacher from the Leicester School of Art who moved to New Zealand in 1907 where he was an influential figure in their own arts and crafts movement. In the 1906 Arts and Crafts Exhibition Society he exhibited an enamel entitled “Cleopatra”, the same plaque was then exhibited in 1907 in New Zealand.
