A: You have a game set. Game and fish sets were very popular in the Victorian Era. Each set usually included a serving platter, six or eight dinner plates and a sauce dish. They were decorated with a variety of game birds in fields. Fish sets were decorated with fish in streams. As a rule, the scenes were hand painted. Sets that have been signed by the original artist are more valuable than those that are not signed. Flambeau China located in Limoges, France, made your set. They were in business from the 1890s to 1914. Similar game and fish sets were made in Germany, but are not as desirable. Your circa 1900 game set would probably be worth $1,000 to $1,200.
