Subject:Famille Verte plate - age?

I am kinda liking the plate at the attached link:
Yeah, I don’t really mind if someone else ends up buying this. But I was curious about whether it is really a Kangxi famille-verte piece. It depicts a famous scene from Romance of the Three Kingdoms, with Lu Bu saving the three brothers from destruction with a show of archery.
I’m thinking that the piece superficially satisfies the requirements of a piece of that period – the plate is the right shape, the colours seem right, the double-ring and leaf seem AOK.
But does anyone else find the porcelain excessively white? Is the footrim too dirty for its own good? And why the lack of wear on the enamelling?
I’d be curious if anyone has an opinion. For me this is only for education, since the plate is way, way out of my reach moneywise.
