Hi, I received your images and thank you for your patience. The Sairey Gamp 5528 toby mug sells for a high of $30 on today's auction market. These used to sell for $50 - $70 however the market is a bit flat on these currently. Please take a moment to leave a rating by clicking the stars.

Hi, I received the images of the Snake Charmer Toby mug, please note that I really only assess one item per question here. I can make an exception and answer this one on this thread for you and you are welcome to post new question threads for me to answer. You can add "For Nora Only" at the beginning so as to ensure that I will be the person who responds. Currently, the Snake Charmer D6912 Limited Edition Royal Doulton toby mug is selling for highs of $150 - $175. A few years ago, these were selling for nearly $400, however the market is a little soft on these at this time. Please take a moment to leave a rating by clicking the stars.

How do I sell the Royal Daulton mugs? I do not have the boxes. Can I sell them to just one place?
Expert:  Nora replied 6 months ago.
Hi, It is okay not to have the boxes. Though it may sound cliche, the best platform for you to sell these is on Ebay. It is where the most potential buyers would first go to search for such items. You can also place them on Craigslist.com for no charge nor a commission fee upon sale. Or try a local consignment shop to sell these for you on your behalf for a commission. I do not recommend selling these direct to a dealer, as they will offer you 10% - 30% of the lowest perceived value. Please take a moment to leave a rating by clicking the stars.
