Question
Monarch Plate Brand
Monarch Plate Brand  
I have a platter or plate of some sort.  It has Monarch Plate Brand 33/34 on the back.  I have been trying to research it and other pieces. There seems to be way more information out there on flatware. I realize this is silver plated and probably worth very little but wanted a professional opinion.  Thank you so much for your time.

Answer
Hello.

There may have been more than one company using the Monarch name. For example, it was used by National Silver Co. of New York beginning in 1943 or so for silver plated pieces.

I'm not familiar with your platter but, in general, silver plated pieces like this have low values. I could not find actual sales recorded for a piece like this so you might want to check with other sources for additional opinions.

I can't tell how large this piece is but larger pieces with intact plating tend to bring more. SO, the range could be $10 to $50 depending on size and condition.

Sorry I could not help more.

Best wishes,

Jim
