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.
I need to know more about your set.
Please tell me how many people it serves.
How many pieces does each person have?
What serving pieces are there? These can add as much as 30-50% to the value of a set.
Then, I need a photo of your pattern.
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.
If another professional enters our exchanges, feel free to tell them that you are working with me if you wish.
