I don't have them with me I keep them at my mothers house, she is in a different state. I can have her send a picture and then get it to you. would that work? You have any idea what they might be worth?
Expert:  Frank replied 1 year ago.

I would want to take a look before I give an estimate if at all possible, but I would be more than wiling to wait for that photo if it could be sent.

Please send at your convenience, no rush.

Thanks again,

Frank

Hello and Welcome to Just Answer,

My name is***** am a Personal Property Appraiser and would be happy to assist you with your question.Your late 19th century fish serving set would have been produced by Lewis Straus and Sons in Carlsbad, Austria. The fish plate set in excellent condition would have a resale value of 300-350USD.

I hope this information was helpful to you today.

Best of luck with your antique fish serving set .

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

Thank You,

Frank
