Small decorative square plate...

Small decorative square plate with 2 birds ( phoenix?) as mark on back, interested to know where it came from.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

Its 10 cm square with scalloped edge, colourful flower pattern around the inner outside edge, with yellow boarder also scalloped. the 2 birds are facing each other with wings up.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

There is crazing on the back and some inside the front.

This piece is from an unknown company in the late 19th/early 20th century, made in the Staffordshire style. The mark, unfortunately, does not appear in any resource guide or database.

The value would be approximately $40.00.

Sincerely,

Jennifer
