The plate has a flat base with flared rounded sides rising to a coggled rim. The plate is decorated with a sgraffito design consisting of a bird, distelfink, perched on tulip plant emanating from a pot all in brown coloring over the yellow colored background with green copper oxide colored highlights. The design is surrounded with a German text along the edge of the plate which according to the back of the plate translates to "Before we know what life is, life is half over." This style of decoration is very much in the Pennsylvania Dutch style common in southeastern Pennsylvania specifically in Bucks, Montgomery, Chester, and Lancaster counties. The plate is glazed on the inside but not on the back. The unglazed back has the characteristic color of unglazed redware and is signed by the artist. The plate is signed L+L Breininger indicating that it was made by Lester himself before he hired assistants who made most of his later ware. Please carefully view photos as they are part and parcel of our description. Date: August 1, 1981. Origin: Robesonia, Pennsylvania. Size: Measures ~9 1/2" in diameter on top and is 1 1/4" high.
