Q: I have a Podmore Walker “Temple” pattern “flow brown” platter, 13 1/2 x 10 1/4 inches. I inherited it from my parents’ Victorian china collection. As much as I’ve been able to determine, it is a Podmore, Walker & Co. original because it’s marked “P.W. & Co.” While such platters are usually flow blue, did Podmore Walker also make flow brown? Is it authentic and what would its value be?

A: Podmore, Walker & Co. was in business in Tunstall, Staffordshire, England, from 1834 to 1859. Enoch Wedgwood joined the company in about 1849. When he became a partner in 1856, the name of the company was changed to Podmore, Walker & Wedgwood. The company became Wedgwood & Co. in about 1860. The color of your platter may be what collectors call “mulberry.” It looks like brown. Value: about $200.
