"Royal Winton" was a trademark used by Grimwade's after 1930.

At auction, a Grimwades plate like yours sold recently fr $7.81.

See the following image.

An realistic estimated retail value would be $20-25.

I wish I had better news.

Online auctions like eBay generally bring wholesale selling prices.

If you would like to sell close to estimated retail, some ideas are:

The internet has your largest audience of buyers. Place small ads on these sites or set up your own small store on these sites.

Etsy.com - small fees - 20 cents to list plus 3.5% final price.
Artfire.com
Bonanza.com
Amazon Marketplace: http://services.amazon.com/content/sell-on-amazon.htm/ref=footer_soa?ld=AZFSSOA

A private seller to a dealer or at auction can expect 30-60% of estimated retail value.

I hope I have helped you.
