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 give my best answers in writing when I have time to think about them.
Sometimes a "Chat box" will pop-up asking if you would like a live conversation. Please know it is not from me.

Please send me more information.

Is there a label or any markings that tell the name of the maker of your cabinet?

What are the dimensions of your cabinet?

Please send a photo of your cabinet.

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

As for the china -

Please send a photo of the marks on the bottom.

I also need a photo of the pattern.
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 file" or "add file" link on your reply page or the "paper clip" found in the toolbar you see on your reply page.

Then tell me

You set serves 8. How many pieces does each person have?

What serving pieces do you have? These can add as much as 50% to the value of a set.

I look forward to receiving your photos and information.

Kind regards,

Doris
