Q: We own 12 plates that have a wide gold embossed border and multicolored flowers in the middle. They’re 11 inches in diameter and I think they’re called charger plates. The back of each plate is marked with a crown above the letters “H & C.” Underneath that are the words “Selb Bavaria” and “Heinrich Co.” Do you know what these plates are worth and how I can sell them?

A: Franz Heinrich founded his porcelain company in Selb, Bavaria, Germany, in 1896. The company became part of Villeroy & Boch in 1976. The mark on your plates was used in the 1930s.
