I have a platter that dates back to the Custis Mansion time

Customer Question

I have a platter that dates back to the Custis Lee Mansion time at Arlington National Cemetary. From the information I have, it is a Swillington-Bridge - Yorkshire Ironstone Earthenwear. The front of the platter has what looks like an oriental royal temple. The back of the platter has what looks like a crest "Parthenon Opague China R&M".
Does this platter have any value?

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

Thanks for the helpful description, could you very kindly attach a photo of it and one of the mark.

Also, how big is it?

Many thanks and wait to hear,


PS. Once you have the photos in your computer, it's 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.
