Lotus and Thistle, Fenton
Alternating lotus blossoms and thistles. Quite a rare pattern, but with a price range of just $25 to $50 for marigold 7-inch bowls. On the right is a photo of the only non-marigold piece in this pattern that I know of. It's in blue and is courtesy of Duane and Norma Uusitalo. The first marigold plate to sell at auction in many years brought $700 in 2010. In 2016, a blue ice cream shaped bowl sold for $75.

At the left is the only Lotus and Thistle plate of which I'm aware. The photo was sent to me by Kandis Richmond in 2006. In 2010, the plate was sold at a Mickey Reichel auction to Phil and Sandy Kay for $700.
