The plates do not have a clear factory mark -- it's pretty common for china this old to be unmarked except for maybe a pattern number or decorator's signature. These particular pieces seem to have subtle inscribed markings on the bottom; one looks like a bass clef, one looks like an overlapping letter V and X, one looks a little like an arrow. I had trouble getting clear photos of these.
I have two (2) of these plates left in total. This listing is for ONE plate. There is one plate with a chip that I will save for last and list at a lower price. If you would like to buy both of the two remaining plates, please let me know and I'll set up a special listing for you!
These one-of-a-kind plates would make a very special wedding or housewarming gift, and a lovely addition to an Easter / spring - themed table.

These plates measure 8.25 inches across, and weigh 394 grams each. They are the perfect size for a small picnic lunch with a sandwich, a few chips and maybe a pickle!
Very good to excellent antique condition. There is very little surface wear on these. One of the plates has a 3-mm chip at the edge and will be slightly discounted; I found no damage on any of the others.
I live in Canada, and will be shipping via Canada Post. I apologize for their high rates! I will refund any overcharge on shipping over $1 -- I'm not out to make money on shipping fees.
