I have what appear to be Delft candlesticks with the markings VR 9901 on the bottom of each. The markings are underlined and could also be LR (underscore) 990/1. Can you tell me anything about this?

Hi There~
My name is ***** ***** I am here to help with your question.
At your convenience, please send more clear in focus photos. A full image with the design and a clear, in-focus close-up of the mark would be ideal.
When taking a clear close-up try using the macro function on your camera. It looks like a small flower icon. This will allow sharper focus at a closer-range.
There may be an +Add Files button or if there is a toolbar with a paperclip icon showing above the box where you type in responses, then follow the steps on this link for sharing photos:

I look forward to seeing the images. If you are unable to send photos right away, that is fine – there is not a time limit here.
Sincerely,
Nora

Hi my name is***** mark on the bottom is similar to the one used by J. N. Recum Grunstadt, Germany. They were known for their faïence pottery (/faɪˈɑːns/ or /feɪ-/; French: [fajɑ̃s]) is the conventional name in English for fine tin-glazed pottery on a delicate pale buff earthenware body. There are no examples of their work currently on the market and little or no collector base. So I will give you a value based on what similar candlesticks are selling for: $75.00 to $100.00
