I have a small hand-painted plate with "Nippon" on the back.

Customer Question
I have a small...

I have a small hand-painted plate with "Nippon" on the back. Wondering about its worth.

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.

It is a small hand-painted plate with "Nippon" on the back. I understand that "Nippon" is the previous name for "Japan."

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

That's all about that plate. In addition, I have a large hand-painted fruit (?) bowl with 6 hand-painted like the big bowl set. They have "Germany" printed on the back, and my great-grandmother brought them from Sweden when my grandmother was 3 years old. They have to be at least 133 years old.

Please let me know if I should proceed checking the value of a small hand-painted plate with "Nippon" on the back. Also a large hand-painted fruit bowl and 6 accompanying small bowls with "Germany" on the back. The set is at least 133 years old. Thank you.
