Here is a link to one that sold for $99 and dates to 1836, is yours similar? Feel free to add images at your convenience, there is not an additional charge for photos here.

You have a Villeroy and Boch Dresden Blue Onion dinner plate.

They used a printed mark, so I know it looks smudged and that is why

you read it as Valleroy and Bochum.

The mark with "wings extending from each side of the head" is from 1874 to 1909.

The current value of this piece is $$50 to $75.00.
