Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am pleased to help. Your plates are 20th century and manufactured in the Middle East, likely in a ceramics commune, but unfortunately the maker shown is not listed in any guide I have access to. They appear to be custom studio produced based on the form and type of glaze used, and pieces like this tend to retail today in the range of $25-40 each, pending condition and demand.
