Customer Question

I have a 60 yr old 6-place setting NORITAKE tea set with Tea server, sugar, creamer, tea cups, saucers and cake plates.
The pattern is a single long stem pink rose.
The bottom of the china has the mark- NIPPON TAKI KAISHA.
Please, can you tell me the value?

Hello and welcome! My name is Doris.
I have been an antiques collector, dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.
I will be pleased to help you.
I need two photos please.
One of the pattern
One clear on of the marks on the bottom
You may need to use the macro function (flower icon) of your camera to get a good clear photo of the marks.
If you cannot get a good photo of the marks, then sketch the marks and take a photo of the sketch.
To send photos you may use the "attach" or "add" link or paper clip you see on your reply page.
If none is there, then you may use the free internet photo site
imgur.com Use the following instructions:
Go to http://www.imgur.com
a. Click "Computer"
b. Find the photo file on your computer that you want to send
c. Click open on the file
d. You will see a Start Upload link on the imgur.com page.
Click on it
e. Your image will appear on the screen
f. Highlight and copy the address link under Direct Link
to the right on the imgur page
g. Paste that link into your reply box on Just Answer
Then I need to know how many pieces are in each of the 6 place settings. Also, a list of serving pieces would be best as these can add a lot to value.
I look forward to your replies.
Kind regards,
Doris
