I HAVE A BLUE & TRANSFER PORCELAIN PLATE. THE CENTER

Customer Question

I HAVE A BLUE & WHITE TRANSFER PORCELAIN PLATE. THE CENTER FEATURES A PEACOCK WITH HIS PLUMAGE (NOT DISPLAYED) RESTING ON A FLOWERED TREE LIMB. THE NEXT SECTION IS DIVIDED INTO THREE LARGE SECTIONS OF FLOWERS AND THREE SMALLER SECTIONS OF A BASKET WEAVE PATTERN THAT CIRCLE THE MIDDLE SECTION OF THE PLATE. FINALLY, THE OUTER SECTION IS ANOTHER BASKET WEAVE PATTERN DIFFERENT FROM THE ONE IN THE MIDDLE SECTION. THE RIM IS TRIMMED IN GOLD. THE RIM IS A DECORATIVE CIRCULAR PATTERN WITH A POINT (ALBEIT SMALL) AND A DIP (AGAIN SMALL) IN THE RIM. ON THE BACK THERE IS A BLUE LINE THREE-QUARTERS DOWN THE BACK OF THE BOWL. THE ONLY MARKING ON THE BACK IS A SIGNATURE IN BLUE THAT LOOKS TO BE A MIRROR IMAGE. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR ME TO READ. IN READING BACKWARDS IT LOOKS LIKE .W THEN A LETTER THAT HAS A DESCENDER. THEN THERE ARE 2 LETTERS THAT LOOK LIKE THEY ARE THE SAME LETTER ONLY THEY ARE PLACED BACK-TO-BACK. THE REST IS IMPOSSIBLE TO READ. THE PIECE IS HEAVY. IT LOOKS MODERN BUT IT HAS ME CURIOUS. CAN ANYONE HELP? THANK YOU IN ADVANCE
