Minorca Pottery

Hi Folks;
This is a bit strange!
During the last few months my wife has started to collect large earthenware plates from Minorca. They typically have "Menorca" across the top and depict things like stylised cockerels or fish. They're usually signed but the signature is unreadable, though it pehaps begins with "P"; sometimes there's also the letter "R" as well. She's convinced they're antiques as they she says they are quite high quality (my wife knows a lot about antique china! - see our e-Bay site!), but I'm convinced they're tourist stuff.
Can anyone supply any information about these plates and where they could have been made?
