The artist ‘Mary’ has painted a large group of the tiny delicate flowers and green and amber leaves on the upper side of this plate and has extended a few leaves and flowers down and around the inside. The flowers have been done in hues of light and deep purple and white with green and yellow centers. The leaves have a mixture of green, gray and a little amber accent making them look very realistic. She has painted the floral arrangement on a light green and cream background. Mary has added wide gold rim and has outlined the lower edge in green giving it a look as if the violet stems have wrapped around the plate. This plate was completely hand painted in France and signed by its French studio professional artist: 'Mary'. She is a listed artist in the 'Collector's Encyclopedia of Limoges Porcelain' Third Edition, by Mary Frank Gaston. There are no chips or cracks; manufacturing anomalies do exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc.
