Customer Question

I have found a plate with maker Wm Holme on the back, and the names A Atkinson and I Cross. The pattern is a yellow cream background with pink, purple and yellow flowers. Is it worth anything. I have a collection of plates to go through!

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

Adding pictures here in this chat is FREE.

UPLOAD pictures of the item to include the front and all writing

on back/bottom (unless it is too heavy). I do not need more than three pictures.

For the best photo, set on white paper on a table if it is a small enough item

(never hold item in your hands).

Use the tool [located on either side of the area where you write to me]

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.

No need to sit by the computer, you will get an email when I respond.

Best Regards,

Have taken 2 photos, one front and one back. Sorry, how do I attach photos? No icons.
Expert:  Rarewares replied 13 days ago.

I am not sure that it shows on tablets. I will not see texted (to the website number) OR emailed photos.
You have to upload them on the website on the internet using the icon next to the area where you write to me (see photo example).
