Customer Question

VALUE OF "Sguenaay" 12 place setings 75 pieces
Submitted: 1 year ago.
Category: Antiques
Expert:  Doris - dfm925 replied 1 year ago.

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.

Please know that I cannot accept any requests for "live conversations" such as phone calls. I must research data to give the most accurate answer.

Besides there are extra system charges to you for live conversations.

You have 12 place settings for 12 guests.

How many pieces are in each place setting.

Also, in possible, it would be best to have a photo of a piece showing the pattern

To send photos you may use the "attach" or "add" link or "paper clip" you see on your reply page.

Kind regards,

Doris

PS: Meanwhile, please don't rate me until you get a full appraisal and a value from me. I mention this because you may get random prompts asking you to rate me before I've submitted an answer. Ignore them, they are automatically generated by the system (it doesn't seem to be able to distinguish an answer from preparatory back-and-forth and information gathering) and don't come from me.

Thanks, Doris

Please check the spelling of your pattern.

Kind regards,

I have found your pattern.

What serving pieces do you have? These add a lots to value.

Kind regards,

Doris

Expert:  Doris - dfm925 replied 1 year ago.

I now see the two serving you listed for the 86 pieces.

I apologize for my last question. Please ignore.

I will with the 86 pieces now.

Kind regards,

Doris

From my research, I determined that your set of 12 place settings plus 2 serving pieces by Royal Worcester and in production 1958-1965 has a retail vintage store value of $1391.

As for where to sell.....If you want to sell quickly at wholesale prices, try one of these sites.
I do not know where you live so I will make suggestions for three countries.

In US:
Replacements.com
ChinaLane.com
ChinaFinders.com
ChinaReplacements.com

In UK:
ChinaSearch.co.uk
MatchingChina.co.uk
ChinaMatchers.co.uk
ReplaceYourPlates.co.uk

Australia: http://www.allthegalleries.com/dealers/porcelain.html

If you would like to sell closer to retail , some ideas are:

The internet has your largest audience of buyers. Place small ads on these sites or set up your own small store on these sites.

Etsy.com - no or small fees
Artfire.com
Goantiques.com - more upscale fee based
Rubylane.com - more upscale fee based
Tias.com
Amazon Marketplace: http://services.amazon.com/content/sell-on-amazon.htm/ref=footer_soa?ld=AZFSSOA
cyberattic.com
collectoronline.com
collect.com
trocadero.com

A private seller to a dealer can expect 30-60% of retail value.

I hope I have helped you.

If I can help you with further questions about this answer, please let me know before you rate me.

Please do not rate me down because of system difficulty, site charges or current appraisal values - all three are beyond my control.
