Help identifying some platters, please.

Can you please help me identify these?

And perhaps an approx $$ value?

I purchased these 2 platters today they're 16.5" by 12" wide.

This is the mark:

This is the mark:

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks!

Is that the only mark on the back? or is there something else as well?
And where did you get them, that may also provide a clue. Looks like the people are riding in a troika.

Yes, that is the only mark. Could it be Staffordshire?

I purchased them at an estate auction in Oklahoma.(where I live)

Thank you Sheila, I don't have a dining room, but they're hanging in my LR. :-) I just love them!

That's not Staffordshire.
Can you tell, are they pottery or stone ware?
Because of the troika I am thinking Russia or Hungary or Ukrane. Don't know a thing about those pottery marks...

They look like some sort of a Delft pattern from Holland, try googling delft patterns or marks and see what you come up with.

I have those exact same plates. Unfortunately, they are packed away and I can't get to them to confirm the maker, but I believe they are Delft. I'm not sure if there suppose to be platter. I used my as wall art.

Great Fine!!!!

I did look in my 2 "marks" books & didn't find anything to match what is on your platters. The crown suggests a country that has Royalty, lion can be U.S. England & some other countries floral so hard to say where they are from. I thought they looked more like ironstone with slight "flow blue" look especially on the back. Nice pieces whatever they are. Enjoy!

They look like Faiance...not ironstone.
Delft wasn't always well marked...often not with the country of origin, but I can't find any Dutch marks that look anything like that. And I have never seen any Deoft showing figures that were not Dutch...or generic flowers or boats or windmills.
It could be Hungarian...Polish..
But I really don't believe it's Delft.
Is the base completely glazed?

Yes, the bases are completely glazed.
There was a 3rd platter that I bought too, has the same mark on the back.

After researching this platter, I've discovered it came from the Grand Union grocery store chain. It was a promotion that they had going on during the Bicentennial in 1976.
I believe this is called "Liberty Blue" and it's by Staforrdshire.
Some had another mark along w/the lion mark, but when the contract ran out w/the original maker, it was made by other manufacturers. Near as I can figure anyway.
