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 some photos:
At least one of the set
One showing the pattern
A clear , close-up of 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 file" or "add file" in the blue box link on your reply page or the "paper clip" found in the toolbar you see on your reply page.Please do not send in ZIP format. The jpg or jpeg format works best.
Generally these chocolate sets were made of porcelain and were made in Germany. The absence of a country of origin mark would date the set to circa 1880's and no later than 1892. A chocolate set can sell for $100 - $1500 depending on the maker. I can help establish the maker of yours by seeing images. Here are some links to examples and their sale prices by different makers and sets that sold in the high range:
Feel free to add photos here at anytime, there is not an additional charge to send pictures here.
