In work so can’t really make a call

These plates are about 120 years old. The cobalt blue and manganese colouring is typical of English decoration at that time. The means of hanging on the wall was to stick on the canvas type material and then support the plate on that. You say that there is damage and unfortunately that makes the values very low. They are purely decorative and if the canvas were soaked off I think that the structure of the plate would be at risk. They would not sell for more than £30 or so each i am afraid. Hope that helps.
