Hi There~
My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help with your question.
At your convenience, please send photos. A full image with the design and a clear, in-focus close-up of the mark would be ideal.
When taking a clear close-up try using the macro function on your camera. It looks like a small flower icon. This will allow sharper focus at a closer-range.
When evaluating an item, photos are essential to helping me come to a correct assessment.
If there is a toolbar with a paperclip icon showing above the box where you type in responses, then follow the steps on this link for sharing photos:

I look forward to seeing the images. If you are unable to send photos right away, that is fine – there is not a time limit here.
Sincerely,
Nora

Hi There,
Thank you for the images.
Would it all be possible to provide a more clear, in-focus image of the maker mark on the underside. I am really not able to discern much from the picture provided, and seeing the mark is an important clue to assessing what you have.
Sincerely,
Nora

Hi,
Thank you for your patience.
The maker mark is for Walker & Hall from the UK.
The mark used on yours with the upturn to the end of the flag is an early Walker & Hall mark used from 1860 - 1910. There should be small marks under the flag that are date ciphers, but I cannot see them in the photo to make the cipher match. They were done in Greek letters.
The 3037 is the pattern name.
The engraved 'Bedouin' likely indicates where this was from, usually a hotel or ship.
On todays' market, this can sell for $100 - $200.
