I have my great grandmother's remaining set of Burgess &

Customer Question

I have my great grandmother's remaining set of Burgess & Leigh flow blue dishes which she purchased in 1892. The pattern is Ophir with gold slashes or swooshes,(like Nike), made through the pattern. There are eight 10" plates, eight flat bowels, one oval serving bowl, cream sugar with lid, three salts, three cup and saucer and some other pieces, I can not remember they are boxed up. Some cousins want them that are not from the same side of the family and I have no idea what to charge them. I have NEVER liked the dishes but I just do not think they should be given away. (These cousins want everything free!! Haha) I would almost rather sell them to someone who would appreciate them. If you could give me a rough idea on the value of the few items I have listed, it would be greatly appreciate. None are damaged. Thank you!!!!

Please credit my master card. I will not spend more just to speak to someone. There are two bowls on eBay , I will use that as a base price. Gives me a ballpark idea, Unbelievable, anything for a dollar. You guys should know where to research this.

You have one very distinct advantage, you are able to see these. I will refer this forca refund..
