I have a about a 100 year + old plate and wish to find its assessed value, please.
This very large round bowl or serving platter dates to the first quarter of the 20th century in this Greek key and heart pattern transferware. Since you do not mention a mark, I suspect it does not have one, but these "chop plates" do have some value at high end antique sales.
This one with its red body and appealing heart design would have a value in the range of 75.00-90.00 (USD). The only marr that I can see is the transferware did not attach in a few small places but it is perfectly unchipped and in good condition. All my best, Dori

Thank you so much. Here is another white body example. The price is too lowlooking at other ware by the company and the size. The estimate of market value is accurate looking at Worldwide sales of similar but different pattern platters..but this is notable and fun to see. http://antiek-kunst.marktplaats.nl/antiek-keramiek-en-aardewerk/575376673-rijstschaal-goudkust-societe-ceramique-maastricht.html?img=1#photoThe size is 26.5 cm diameter
The company is Gold Coast Societe Ceramique Maastricht fromthe period 1880 to 1910.. The location that this is from is MaastrichtNeatherlands.
Here is some found history from Sociaal Historisch Centrum Limburg:
"The entrepreneurs Winand Nicolaas Clermont and Charles Chainaye in 1851 founded a pottery in the Maastricht neighbourhood Wijck. Their company was taken over in 1859 by the Belgian engineer Guillaume Lambert and transformed into a limited partnership. Four years later it became a limited liability company that became generally known as 'Société Céramique'.
Under the directorate of Victor Jaunez (1863-1913), engineer P.J. Lengersdorff (1902-1915) and Edgar Michel (1915-1954), Société Céramique flourished andbecame the main competitor of Petrus Regout's firm, which was renamed Sphinx in1899. Around 1900 the products of Société Céramique vied with those of Sphinxin price as well as in quality.
In the twentieth century, Société Céramique started to focus more and more on the production of sanitary ware. In 1958, to the surprise of many, the company merged with its Maastricht competitor Sphinx.
The factory premises were demolished in the early 1990's to make room for a prestigious new housing estate, which was given the name Céramique."
