@renken1,
Not with the scant details provided.

You might check out some of the items in this list to see if any are similar to what you have.

I presume that Golden Dawn is the name of the style and the number is the inventory number for ordering replacements.

@Butrflynet,
If it is a graphic symbol of "golden Dawn" then it would be the Noritake "Komari" line. This would be valuable since it was a porcelain glazed setting that was first made and marketed as Japan was just opening to the West. The symbol is a golden dawn sunrise symbol with the rays all squiggly.


Rookwood did a sunrise symbol on their original 1921 patent. However, They didnt make any plates (except for a tea set or two) . They were mostly all stomeware.

WENTZ "Westward Ho" and STAR also made some pottery with the sunrise symbol(no plates that Im aware of)

That was one of the first items in the list I linked to. Maybe she'll luck out and it will be the same one.

I don't think that's gay at all.

A little 'grandma-ish' tho. Smile

Throwing my own pottery upon a wheel and doing my own glazing and baking are all things on my "try before I die" list.
