This porcelain plate was produced in Limbach Germany, by Gotthelf Greiner between 1772 and 1787. It has an under glaze blue mark with a star. The plate has a diameter of 9 inches. It is indented about 1/2 inch toward the middle making it deep in the center. The border of 1 1/2 inches is reticulated or pierced. The piercing was done with a knife by hand. You can see the irregularities in this difficult hand work with magnification. This plate has magnificent hand painting of lovers in a garden. It is done with miniscule brush strokes in the style of Meissen. Single flower buds and insects dot the outer edge. This is a fine example of antique German porcelain of museum quality. Condition: Excellent
