This is a pair of plates (about 1920) made by Fisher and Mieg under the tradename of Pirkenhammer of Pirkenhammer, Bohemia (now Czech Republic) between the years of 1919 to 1930 in the 4527 pattern, a series of designs taken after the paintings of artist Angelika Kauffmann. (see photos) These plates are valued at $45 each.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are Offerup.com (local), Varagesale.com (local), Wanelo.com, http://www.decluttr.com, Bonanza.com, Ioffer.com, Etsy.com, eBay and letgo.com (local).
You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an
auction house near you and consign to them.
Please do click the stars now for this one (bonuses are also welcome!), it is very important for me
to get five-star feedback for answers.
