Painted chinas can be very valuable.They are not exceptionally rare but condition and the painted designs are what drive the value.The best ones are glazed after they were painted and the colors are still bright.Size is also important.3/4" would not be a rare size,the larger the better.Anything over an inch in diameter with good color will be highly desirable.Some even have scenes painted on them and can sell in the thousands.I traded the best ones I had dug a while back for some bottles and regret it now.Just a guess on value of that one is $10-$15or maybe a little more,but it sure is nice.I am sure some of the marble guys will be along to chime in eventually.Good luck digging,Doug
