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.

Please know that I cannot accept any requests for "live conversations" such as phone calls. I must research up-to-date data to give the most accurate answer.
Besides there are extra system charges to you for live conversations.

I have even been to the Meissen factory outside Dresden, Germany. I went through their museum. I bought a plate with all the genuine Meissen marks through the years as decoration. I own several pieces of old Meissen.

To give you the most accurate valuation, I need some photos - at least one of the pattern and one of the marks on the bottom.

You may need to use the macro function (flower icon) of your camera to get a good clear photo of the marks.

If you cannot get a good photo, then sketch the marks and take a photo of the sketch.

To send photos you may use the "attach" or "add" link or "paper clip" you see on your reply page.

I look forward to your replies.

Kind regards,

Doris
