Thank you very much for getting back to me with that information.

In excellent condition your Spode Christmas Tree set would have a replacement value of(###) ###-####SD in excellent condition.

As far as the fair market value, if you were going to attempt to resell the set yourself you would be looking at between 40-60% of that replacement value based on both the condition as well as the regional demand.

Right now through November has actually been proven to be the best time to sell using online sites such as Ebay.com. But I would also recommend Etsy.com and Rubylane.com as possible sales venues.

If there are any cracks, chips or damage to the china, this would detract from the resale value. of the china.

I hope this information was helpful to you today.

Best of luck with your Spode Christmas Tree china set .

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

Thank You,

Frank
