Value of a French Saxon Porcelaine Plate

I have this plate, on the back it says porcelaine, underneath that is the word
France, under that REC. There is a shield with a small castle within the shield. Under the marking it says Castelroux. The front says Angers La Maison d' Adam.

I can't find a marking that matches, can't find anything other than it is from the Sebring company, that died out in 1932, and later was combined with another Sebring company. Any information would be greatly appreciated, as far as value goes, I am interested in whether it is a keeper.

The true value is low so I think you will have to make your decision to keep or not based upon how much you like the plate.

  • These plates are not really rare although there may not be very many for sale at auction sites.
  • The company made a lot of different plates and most were almost mass produced and sold as souvenir items in gift shops in France during the heyday of tourism in that country.
  • You will find plates with many different scenes and made from numerous materials but all seem to have about the same value.
  • Plates like these are very slow sellers and sellers usually keep them listed for a few months before giving up on a sale.
  • Occasionally, someone will have an interest in a particular place such as Angers La Maison d' Adam and may pay a few dollars for a souvenir.

  • I would value your plate at $8 - $20 but that does not mean it would sell at any of those prices.
  • Here are some current listings and the asking prices.

If you decide to check on prices/value at a later date, you should research under the name Castelroux as that is the real name of selling brand.

Step 1
Maison d'Adam, Adam's House on the plate, is the oldest house in Angers and built around 1500.

Step 2
Go on E-Bay for two month period,and watch what your plate sells for.

Step 3
Actual sales not just listed prices.
