These pieces are from England and not from Ireland. They were made by Wilkinson Ltd (Arthur J Wilkinson, Ltd) of Burslem, Staffordshire, England in 1907 in the art nouveau transferware IRIS pattern. This is not multicolor transferware, it is technically called 'clobbered' transferware meaning that there was a main transfer design in the brown/rust color and the other colors were enamel paint applied on top of the transfer. Multi-colored transferware is when all of the design is in transfer but in two or three colors (pink/green or yellow/black being the most popular). This pattern in the Iris pattern by Wilkinson in 1907 has the following values; platter $85.00, Sauce Tureen with under plate and ladle, $65.00.
The market for transferware has become very soft in the past 5 years, so I have valued these to reflect the recent price drop. I am a member of the Transferware Collectors Club which is an international group that meets several times a year to discuss the collections and the current market.
Please do enjoy these pieces!

Yes, I have seen pieces in this color scheme that have sold. I have access to paid databases for sold items and these prices that I found reflect the past 1 year of sales. The clobbered version of this pattern is actually not rare and are the same value as the flow blue pieces (flow blue is created differently than transfer ware). Just because there aren't pieces on the internet right now does make a piece rare. Clobbered transfer ware in general is on the low end of the collecting spectrum. If someone offered you 1200 for the platter, you should take it! The prices for transfer ware right now are at their lowest values in 20 years.
You are welcome.
