Here is the marking
Expert:  Rarewares replied 1 year ago.

This is a decorative charger made by the Zenith factory in Gouda, Holland circa 1946-1950. This factory was in business from 1915 to 1984, and began making the blue and white Delft for the North American market after the war. This is considered Zenith Delft in antique lingo. It was not from a dinner service , but was made as a decorative hanging plate.Other marks indicate it is shape number 752 and is painted with the Z design by artist with initials LB (unknown). This piece has a value of $200 to $300 us dollars.
