Please send an image of the front of a plate in your set and the backside so I can see the mark.


Expert:  Nora replied 3 months ago.


The value of the set really depends on the maker, age and pattern as well as the market interest. Currently, the market is extremely flat on china sets as less people purchase these and dine on fine china at home on a daily basis. A fair average would be to take the number of pieces you have and multiply by 4 to get an idea of what this could sell for on today's market. Please feel free to let me know the maker name or send images.
