The first is a trio set is from the C Steele collection for Porcelaine BIA Cordon Blue De Chine.This was a French company that made high fired kitchen ware in France from the 1940's through60's and in the later years, had the items made in China. This trio(this is what a cup, with several plates underneath is called)has a current value of $30.00.The second item is a plate made in 1984 by Georges Briard in the Floral Fantasy pattern,a design that is a reproduction of 1755 Strasbourg porcelains. This plate has a current value of $10 to $15.00.It is important for you to click the stars after you have read this answer.

Hello,The site won't let me answer on the Lidkoping piece because the other expert has it locked. The ALP mark is for the Martin Brothers of Bohemia/Czech. This was the mark they used on exports TO Sweden. The dish was not made in Sweden but was made as a souvenir FOR Sweden by the Martin Brothers.

I received the answer and then another expert came in and said the alp plate is from the 1920's and has the markings of the Swedish coat of arms. I was not looking for another answer.
