I don't need to do a free trial, I would just like to know about these 2 plates. I paid the $5.00 but I am not signing up for something that I have to cancel that I am not going to use.

I just answer questions and am given only your question, I know nothing about your account or how or what you are charged.

You have two Royal Doulton fish plates made for the retailer Davis and Collamore. The RA represents ***** ***** studios, a famous artist that painted for Royal Doulton. This number dates the plates to 1904. While this would have been part of a large set with 12 plates, sauce boat and fish platter, the two plates still have value. Each plate is worth $175.00 each retail.
