I have a hand made plate which is Relevant to the 1952

Customer Question
Hi, I have a...

Hi, I have a hand made plate which is Relevant to the 1952 Winter Olympics in Helsinki. Trying to find out what an approximate value might be and maybe a bit more history related to it. I have photos available if you would like to see.

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 important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

There is hand written initials inscribed in the base of the plate Bv.V.
