Your plate was part of a popular range of what's called "series ware" issued by Royal Doulton and called The Twelfth Night series. It was produced from 1904 - 1928 and you'll be able to see the date of your plate by looking for the date code on the back. It's a group of impressed numbers that gives the month and the year.
Sir Andrew Aguecheek is the principal comic character from the play.
The other one commonly found in this series is Sir Toby Belch. Most pieces in the series also carry the pattern number "D2495".
The series was designed by Doulton's art director, C.J. Noke, and that's a printed facsimile of his signature on the plate.
If you saw your plate for sale in an antique store, it would have a full retail value of $120.
This is also the replacement value and what you should insure it for.
Expect to get approximately 30% - 40% of this if you were to sell at auction or on-line.
I do hope this helps.
Best wishes,
