Customer Question

I have an incomplete set of Royal Doulton china from the mark it looks to be from the 1930s.
The pattern is a gold band on the rim, and then a wider burgundy band, followed by another gold band towards the inside. I can't find a picture on the website to identify the name of the pattern. Does this sound familiar?

Hello

I received the pictures thank you. The pattern is E-5148. Are the pieces you have what are shown in the pictures?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
No, I have more, but it seems they were acquired at various farm sales and flea markets in Missouri. Including gravy boat and dinner plates, salad\soup plates, and covered serving bowls. Should I picture all on the iPhone?
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
There also oval serving bowls and saucers but no cups.
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
The reason I don't work off my iPhone it's too small this task is for some sort value for the family meaning my brother. I am not a vendor. I also have a mixed set of depression glass of amber Madrid pattern some original some reproductions

Hello

If you can tell me about what pieces you have that make up a set of this Doulton Pattern, I can give you an idea of what the value would be as a set. I just need to know, Dinner plates , Bread and butter Plates, Salad Plates, cup and saucer- this makes up a 5pc place setting, how many of those are there that make up a complete set. Then what serving pieces, platters, bowls, large bowls, sugar, creamer, tea or coffee pot.. Etc.. How many of these there are total.

I know what you mean about the phone, I cannot work from mine. There are too small for me and I have a larger one.
