Q: This plate belonged to my great-grandmother. I can’t find this maker’s mark anywhere. Can you give me any information about the maker?

 

A: Beyer & Bock, a company in Volkstedt, Thuringia, Germany, used this mark from about 1927 to 1960. The company began as a porcelain decorating shop. Porcelain was made after 1890. Value of your plate, about $53.
