I have an Oriental plate (pottery) that was supposedly over

Customer Question

I have an Oriental plate (pottery) that was supposedly over 200 years old in 1970. It was used as partial payment for a boat. The writing on the back is oriental characters. The most interesting thing about it, is that it has a home-made pouch to keep it safe made out of a light blue material that is getting threadbare. It also has oriental writing on it. I would like to know the best way to find out if this item has any worth. Thank you
