JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I am downsizing and come across a royal doulton friendship series tea set with a selection of flower designs. Is there any value?
JA: OK got it. Last thing – JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to Antiques Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. We can help you for less if you're not in a rush. Are you willing to wait a bit?
Customer: yes!

Royal Albert Friendship Series Tea set comprising Morning Glory, Hawthorn, Daffodil, Wild Rose, Narcissus. Do these have any value
Expert:  Frank replied 1 year ago.

Good Morning,

Thank you very much for your request.

Are these full sets or just individual cup and saucers?

Any damages?

Are you interested in reselling?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
They are not full sets but individual cups,saucers and sandwich plate. Happy to sell. No visible damage to the items.
Expert:  Frank replied 1 year ago.

In excellent condition your cup and saucer sets would have replacement values as follows:

Royal Albert Friendship Series

-Morning Glory: 35-38USD

-Hawthorn:32-35USD

-Daffodil:32-35USD

-Wild Rose: 35-38USD

-Narcissus: 38-41USD

Those prices are for the sets in excellent condition. Any cracks, chips or damage would detract from the resale value.

I hope this information was helpful to you today.

Any feedback you can leave for my service would be much appreciated.

Thank You,

Frank

Thanks, how do I go about completing a sale? Do you have a representative to check the quality before committing to a purchase? Or is this what I should expect from a dealer?
Expert:  Frank replied 1 year ago.

Those values are what you would expect from someone looking to purchase from you as a replacement piece or an addition to a collection. A dealer will offer between 15-25% of those values in order to make money off of the transaction.

I would recommend trying rubylane.com as well as etsy.com as a possible sales platform if you decide to try to sell the china online.
