I have a set of Canonsburg dinnerware, Simplicity pattern.

Resolved Question:

I have a set of Canonsburg dinnerware, Simplicity pattern. These belonged to my Great Aunt who would have married and gotten these in the late 1800s. They are in great condition, with most pieces. How do I find out the value of these? Thank you.

Hello - Thank you for your question. These do come up fairly regularly on the online auction histories of the last few years. I find 24 sets in the last few years and the price is fairly stable. Individual plates are 5-7.00, saucers 5.00, creamer and sugar 10-15.00, gravy boat and saucer c.20.00.

 

Here is a set that I found from 2007 - It had 8 plates and sold for 46.51

I know that this maybe disappointing but the domestic ware market is fairly vast and prices are low. Best wishes, Dori
