I have a small set of plates with pictures of British castles...John Maddock & Sons Ltd. Sunset Ware Royal Ivory # 755536. Do you have any information of them?

This set of John Maddock and Sons English transferware in the British Castles pattern

is from 1929-1930 based on the registry number of 755536. The values are a s follows;

$20.00USD for one square sandwich plate,

$20.00USD for one oblong plate, and

$15.00USD each for 5 small individual serving plates.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are Varagesale.com, Ioffer.com, OfferUp.com, Ebay and letgo.com.
You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.

I just read your previous messages. It takes a few minutes to research patterns and values when a customer is not able to add photos,

I am sure you understand. I was writing your answer while you were sending those messages. Wishing you and yours a wonderful day.
