Hi! My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help with your interesting dish.

Thanks for the excellent description of the kite mark. It indicates the piece is British and the design for it was registered on 19th October 1863, so it's quite an age.

If you can get a photo to me, I'll be able to tell you more about it and give you a value.

Many thanks and wait to hear,

PS. Once you have the photos in your computer (if you are using a smart phone camera, just email them to yourself) it's then a simple matter to attach them. Just click on the paperclip icon, located above the text box where you are typing to me. If there's no paperclip, click on the "Add files" tab.

If you get stuck go here for help.

Alternatively, if you can collar a passing teenager with an iPhone they would have photos posted here in about two minutes. Thanks R.
