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.
Thank you for the information.
Please allow me time to research the data required by your question, calculate current values and write my answer.
I thank you in advance for your patience.
From my research of the Gorham pattern lyric, I was able to determine the value of 10 place settings of 6 pieces each would be $2100-2200 if engraved with the single letter "G."
As for where to sell.....If you want to sell quickly at wholesale prices, try one of these sites.
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 feesArtfire.comGoantiques.com - more upscale fee basedRubylane.com - more upscale fee basedTias.comAmazon Marketplace: http://services.amazon.com/content/sell-on-amazon.htm/ref=footer_soa?ld=AZFSSOAcyberattic.comcollectoronline.comcollect.comtrocadero.com
Another method that could be very effective would be to place a classified in the "Maine Antique Digest" It has a large readership of collectors all across the country.
A private seller to a dealer can expect 30-60% of retail value.
I hope I have helped you.
