Larry, you were right regaurding my redwing platter with the gourds(LOL!)they aren’t gourds. i did some research of my own and found out that i bought a provincial Orleans platter round about 15" across. i found it at a yardsale for a 1$.how’d i do?
An Orleans 15 inch platter in excellent condition is worth around $40. Your $1 yard sale purchase was a very nice find.
