Who made this plate?

Anyone have any idea who made this plate? I recently found a beautiful plate at a charity shop, but half of the maker's mark has worn off. It is cream with 3 hand painted orange-red poppies and a green edge, and I think it may be from the 1930s. I don't think it's particularly valuable, but I'd like to see if I can find anything to match it. There are a few pictures on my Flickr page. I've tried Googling, but haven't found anything yet.
