Customer Question

I have a seven piece Reed & Barton silver plated set consisting of 1)coffee pot, 2) teapot, 3) creamer, 4) sugar bowl, 5) waste pot, 6) 28" tray and 7)25 C. coffee urn. Date of mfg. would be late 1950's to maybe 1965, when it was received. It could be "Regent" pattern but the small book does not show pattern well.
The coffeepot, teapot, sugar and creamer all have #2352 label on box, The waste pot has 23-014 stamped on box, the urn has 5354 marked on box and the tray has #2377 marked on box.
I have made Pacific cloth covers for each piece and it is stored in those bags in the original boxes. It has been used only once or twice. I now wish to donate it to a local church for use in the lovely, historic over 100 yr. old See House and need to get a valuation so I can write off the value on my taxes.

Did the Seattle Jeweler give you a value several years ago.
Kind regards,

I will try to get a good photo of the tea service. And, in response to the Seattle jeweler valuation, it was 15 or 16 years ago and was, as I remember, about $600. However, costs, values and prices have surged since then.
