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 must research data to give the most accurate answer.
Besides there are extra site charges to you for live conversations.
How many guests will your set serve (this is the number of place setting)?
How many pieces are in each place setting?
Finally, please tell me what serving pieces you have. These can add a lot to the value of a set.
I look forward to your reply.
There are several makers with California in their name.
Please send me a photo of the marks on the bottoms.To send photos you may use the "attach" or "add" link or "paper clip" you see on your reply page.

I also need a photo of a cup and saucer.
Thank you for the clear photos.
I work almost every day with a few breaks for meals and errands, etc. I am on Central USA time.
I plan to be here next week.
There is no hurry.
The mark is clear. It is one I am not familiar with; so, I will need to research it.
I really look forward to hearing back from you. I had a good time researching your mark.
Again, there is no hurry. Do not rush.
I really feel I would not be the best one to evaluate your apothecary bottles.
Try asking about them in a separate question. Perhaps another pro will be able to answer that question.
I look forward to hearing back from you.
If you have any other items to be evaluated, type "Doris" at the first of the question.
I will answer this question about your china when you have a count.
