Thank you I will begin researching, no rush I am happy to help. I noticed you state the date is 1894 and the photo shows 1893. Are we looking at pieces in both years? I just wanted to clarify there is no issue just wanted to double check. Thank you

The plates are approx 8-9 inches .A small dinner plate.

Expert:  LadyTanya65 replied 1 year ago.

Hello, thank you for the information. The first 13 plates - they are 22.00-25.00 each. The gravy boat I do see the damage its value is 15.00 These were all hand painted by a ladies painting club or gathering that got together to socialize and paint while having a light lunch or brunch. It was for finer ladies to gather and share , talk have a meal together and then paint where they would be fired and taken home. This is why many have the same initials and other sets will have many names or initials. You have some very old nice items. If I may be of further service please let me know.
