Customer Question
Hello, I think I...

Hello, I think I have an antique deruta 16th century ceremonial wall plate depicting the Byzantine Petronas

Expert's Assistant: Don't you just love the idea of finding something valuable in your attic? I do, but I think all I have up there is junk my brothers abandoned before they left home. Always a good idea to check things with the Antiques Appraiser, though. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

Ceremonial wall plate deruta16th century depicting Byzantine empereress brother Petronas

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

No I actually don’t have any real idea I have been trying to research myself what I have said could be totally wrong
