This beautiful dish was given to me by my friend, Marguerite about 10 years ago. I know it has a value, but not sure what. It is also a very big dish, one photo is by the measuring tape - it's almost 2 feet long.

I tried to photograph it in halfs to zoom into the sea shells that are what look to be handpainted.

I photographed the seal on the back.

I think that it is a very old piece (60+ years)

    Now is the front signed? Look very carefully, it is hand painted so see if the artist signed it and let me know. Dave

    I cannot see a signature
  3. TerryE, 7 years ago
    does this type/style of dish have a name?
  4. Dizzydave Dizzydave, 7 years ago
    No style name, just Hand Painted PL Limoge Oval Platter, Retail Value around 75.00 if it were signed a bit more. Dave

    really can't see a signature.... I was trying to see if it was in a shell design, I might be able to faintly see initials? but could be part of the shell design

    thanks Sheri. Does anyone know of the best way to sell this? I've tried E-Bay with no success

    There is a site called LiveAuctioneers. Perhaps one of the auction houses near you would sell it or a consignment store, or maybe ask a local estate sale person if you can put it on consignment with them. Have you tried Craigslist?
