Im not sure of all of the rules here. My last post was deleted so I guess I cant ask questions (not sure).
I picked up this old plate at an estate sale. It was in the rafters of a very old home here in Buffalo, NY. I only paid .50 cents for it and I thought it was a great buy. I cleaned the plate with soap and water when I got it home as it was covered in dust and dirt. After the wash I found a nice butterfly on a blanket or table cloth as shown in picture 3 (on the inner slope of the plate). There is nothing on the back except for a speck of blue. Its unmarked. The plate is crackled all over with some stains. The edges have almost no glaze left as its worn off. I know nothing about this kind of stuff and Im wondering its age. I will have to get the books out for this one. I bet I wont find anything like it or a maker.
Its neat to hold and look at something this old.
