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.
You are asking about three different patterns here.
Please allow me time to research the data required by your question, calculate current values and write my answer.
I should be back within an hour.
I thank you in advance for your patience.
From my research, I was able to determine the following retail vintage store values for your father's plates:
Bygone Traders - $36 each
Europaische Singvogel von Ursula Band - $41 each
Beauties of the Red Mansion - $39 each.
If you would like to sell close 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 - small fees - 20 cents to list plus 3.5% final price.
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.
I highly recommend this method. They only charge $25 for 25 words in a classified ad. This publication is a monthly newspaper as well as on their internet website.
Or try your local Craig's List.
I do not recommend eBay. It is mostly an auction/wholesale site.
A private seller to a dealer or at auction can expect 30-60% of retail value.
I hope I have helped you.
