This porcelain plate was produced in Germany by the Carl Thieme Dresden studio in the 1890s. It is 9 3/4 inches in diameter. The porcelain blank is reticulated around the 1 3/4 inch border. There are reserves containing 4 vignettes of lovers in garden landscapes. They alternate with the cut out floral pattern similar to the type Meissen used. The center of the plate has a large Watteau scene with couples in 18th century dress. The painting is done in fine detail and bright colors. There is a gold border surrounding the central scene, dotted with raised turquoise jeweled beading. There are gilded details and gold trim. It is highly unusual to find a Thieme Dresden plate so ornately decorated.
