  2. My wife has inherited from her mother-in-law a white porcelain dish about 3 inches high and the same in diameter. It has a spiral fluted pattern on the sides and a raised rose flower with leaves on the side. On the bottom is your crest and the Reg number 0857.
    Could you give us any information about this cup/bowl as to age and value.
    Thank you for your help. It is a very pretty piece of work and we treasure it.

We flew our drone over Downpatrick town and captured a couple of aerial 360° photographs. Look out for the marker points in the aerial virtual tours, some of which will allow you to jump from the sky down into some of the various visitor attractions found in the town.
