This answer was rated:

I have a pottery plate with a signature on it but I do not know if it has any value. It looks European but I cant be sure.
JA: The Antiques Appraiser can help. You can also send photos once I've connected you. Does the pottery have unique or identifying markings?
Customer: Yes there is a signature on it. Its very clear but I cant read what it says.
JA: Do you know how old the pottery is? What condition is it in?
Customer: Its in very good condition but I dont think its very old maybe 70s
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?
Customer: no
