I have a fruit (?) bowl with 6 saucers. The says: Hoper

Customer Question
I have a fruit...

I have a fruit (?) bowl with 6 saucers. The mark says : Hoper Hanley , Semi-Porcelain, Pottery, England - Geisha. I can't read anything that might be a date. Is this something of any worth other than it's pretty?

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

It seems to be in good condition - no chips, etc.
