Customer Question

I have a full set of Limoges china from the 1800's (serving plates, soup tureen, finger dishes, the works). The stamp says "Haviland Theo." It's a blue flowered pattern with gold edging. I wonder what it's worth and where I should go about selling it.

Hi Wayne,
If you haven't received my pics yet I think we should assume they didn't go through. What do you suggest? Do you want to give up and refund my money?
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I've saved the pics differently and will try one more time. If I don't hear from you by next week I'll assume you can't help me and would like my money back.

Dear Wayne,So glad you got the pictures. I have service for 12, including dinner plate, salad plate, bowl, tea cup, saucer, finger bowl, as well as three serving trays (small, medium, large), a soup tureen, gravy boat, and butter dish.
Expert:  Wayne replied 8 months ago.

Hi,

Your set would sell for $800-1000 at auction and insurance value is $2000.

Thank you,

Wayne

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Thanks Wayne. Why is the insurance value more?
Expert:  Wayne replied 8 months ago.

Hi!

Insurance value is retail. This is what it would cost to replace at an antique store or something like replacements.com.

Thanks,

Wayne

Please take time to rate my service *****
