    Have you tried searching by the terms 'lusterware' (American) or 'lustreware' (British)?

    I haven’t, but I will now. There are no other marks other than the gold 5. It was my great grandmother’s is the only other thing I know about it. She was from England and so may have brought it with her. Here are full images AA0A0032-2E73-428E-A880-B2BC3632C2BA.jpeg B6EC5941-DA35-4A81-919A-C21D2E755F1F.jpeg

    BTW, it isn't a wall plate. It is a serving plate, for items like cake or cookies, with handles. You didn't mention the size but I'm guessing it is larger than a dinner plate.

    If meant to hang on the wall, it needs holes on the backside to put the wire/thread through, like this:
