After much research, I’ve narrowed the date to pre-1931, & I think they’re from about 1915, but nothing more concrete.
I will also include my paperwork from my research, if interested.

The etched intricate designs are amazing.
It was hard to get the lighting right in these pix to do these plates justice.
