Q: My sister recently received an antique German “napkin plate.” It’s a small majolica plate with a design in the center that looks just like a square folded napkin. When were these plates popular?

A: Majolica napkin plates were made not only in Europe, but also in the United States. They were popular in the late 1800s and were used to serve cake. Today the plates sell to collectors for prices ranging from $90 to $150.
