I've bought 4 plates which I believe are Austria Royal

This answer was rated:

Hi - I've bought 4 plates which I believe are Austria Royal portraits - how do I identify the maker from the stamp?
JA: The Antiques Appraiser can help. You can also send photos once I've connected you. Do you know how old the plate is? What condition is it in?
Customer: Its 1890-1920 marked AUSTRIA 3 are in good condition, one has small chips to the gold rim/bordee
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?
Customer: thats all the info I have but can send photos


My screen name is*****'s see how I can help you today.

UPLOAD pictures of the item (the front and all writing
on back or bottom if there is any). I do not need more than three pictures.
For the best photo, set on white paper on a table (never hold item in your hands).

Use the tiny blue square with an arrow or the paper clip symbol
to browse your device for a photo. Add one picture at a time.
Add a message before each photo (phot 1, photo2, photo 3).

I hope to give real-time responses but there are occasions where I take a bit longer.
I will always respond to you as quickly as possible.

Best Regards,
