Hello,

In order for me to properly assess what you have I will need to see images and clear, in-focus close-ups of the mark.

Please send the photos at your convenience. There is not an extra charge to provide more pictures here.

Hi,

Thank you for your patience.

The mark of J.B. Deppisch is for a business located in Wurzburg, Germany that was founded by Johann Baptist Deppisch and active from 1859 - 1873. This was a purveyor who obtained a license to sell porcelain, hardware, and iron household goods.

The material of your set appears to be pewter with ebonized tops and handle.

The high value is $100 - $150.
