Customer Question

I recently purchased a dinner plate of an older Dutchman with a young boy (in matching clothes) The front of the plate says "NOKE" while the back of the plate says
"Royal Doulton England" with a lion standing on a crown. Further marks are what appears to be a "D2288"
I have photos but don't see a place to attach them in this email.
Does this plate have any value or is it just decorative? I read that Noke is known for his figurines.
Thank you.

I would like to see the front of the plate. Try to add a file by using the paper clip icon in the text box where you reply back to me. This feature is only visible on desktop computers and not mobile phones or tablets. If that doesn't work, then email pictures to***@******.*** and put 'forCustomerin antiques' in the subject line so that they will forward to me. It might take longer this way, but I will work on your question as soon as I get the pictures.
