The cat’s whiskers
Ibought this plate from a charity shop as it reminds me of my cat, Leo. The artist is Derick Bown and the plate’s about 6in in diameter, with Poole Pottery stamped on the back. I only paid £2, but do you think it might be worth hanging on to? My granddaughter has her eye on it – should I just give it
to her as a present?

■ I’d let your granddaughter treasure it, Christine. The £2 you paid is about the going price at the moment, and it’ll never be worth a fortune.
