I received this plate from my Iowan Aunt about forty years ago, who was an antique dealer. She said that plates that depicted fruit were rare.
This plate (dinner size) has a rippled double edge shaping in the pottery. It is muted green on the outside edge. Beneath that is a muted pink, then a gold lacy design with daisy motif where the upraised part meets the flat.
The center has a transfer depicting a clutch of plums in various shades with leaves and a stem. Overall is an iridescent glaze.
Any idea of the age or possible worth? I don't expect it to be worth much, but am curious. It has one chip on the back that is barely visible from the front.
Thanks for any info. I appreciate it.
