Hello,
This is a great porcelain souvenir piece from the early 20th century that was made in Germany for export to the US and has a color transferprint image of oil derricks from Jennings Oil Field in Louisiana.
On today's market this can easily garner $100 - $200 at auction. The suggested insurance or replacement value is $300.
