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.
Thank you for the photos.
Please tell me a little more information.
What pieces are in the "etcetera." I need this to give you the most accurate answer.
Your china was made not too far from you.
Please allow me time to research the data required by your question, calculate current values and write my answer.
I should be back within 45 minutes.
I thank you in advance for your patience.
As you probably know, your set was made by Boch Keramis located in La Louviere, Belgium and in France.
The firm was established in 1841 and ceased production in 1998.
There are various marks on your pieces but they all seem to date before 1973.
The blue and white pattern name is Copenhague.
My research indicates that your set of pieces in this pattern has a retail vintage store value of $870-950 assuming good condition.
Online auctions like eBay generally bring wholesale selling prices.
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.Artfire.comBonanza.comAmazon Marketplace: http://services.amazon.com/content/sell-on-amazon.htm/ref=footer_soa?ld=AZFSSOA
These sites are excellent and more upscale but fees are higher. I only recommend them if you have several items to sell.GoAntiques.comRubylane.comTias.comcyberattic.comtrocadero.com
A private seller to a dealer or at auction can expect 30-60% of retail value.
I hope I have helped you.
