Hi Karyn,

My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help.

Please give me a list of exactly which pieces you have and how many of each. Pieces vary in value. Count only those pieces in perfect condition.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
9 dinner plates
8 dessert plates
9 small bowls
9 cups
9 saucers
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
There is only 7 perfect condition dessert plates. All other pcs are in excellent condition.
Expert:  Judith-on-Antiques replied 1 year ago.

Thanks for this information.

This pattern has been discontinued.

If all the pieces are in perfect condition, the current retail (replacement or insurance) value of your set is approximately $310. If you were to sell it, you could expect to get the fair market (private sale or auction) value of approximately 40% of the retail amount, or $125, depending on location and actual condition.

I hope this answer has been helpful to you, Karyn. If you have any further questions or problems concerning your answer, please reply to me before deciding to leave a negative rating, which does affect my job.

If you would like to work with me on further questions you might have, it would be a pleasure to work with you again. All you have to do is put my name (Judith) at the beginning of your question.

I need your positive rating!

You do that immediately following this answer by clicking one of the top two Smiles, or Stars depending which one you see on your answer.

Thank you so much!
