I require an appraisal on a Rosenthal/Bahnhof /Selb/ GERMANY/CHIPPENDALE

Customer Question

I require an appraisal on a Rosenthal/Bahnhof /Selb/ GERMANY/CHIPPENDALE dinner set comprising of 105 pieces. The set was purchased by my mother in Germany sometime between the end of WW11 and 1951 when we came to Australia. I have photographed the set and have a written breakdown of the pieces if required. Thank you Bobbi.

Hello, Bobbi, and thank you for your question.


I can certainly help, but I will need to know which pieces are included in the set and their quantities.


Thank you.

Bobbi -


Please forgive the lapse in time. I had a serious medical emergency and have been off line for several days. I'm sorry for any convenience to you. I am back, however, and I have evaluated your inventory of fine china. Don't worry about the photos not posting. You have provided me with enough information to proceed without their necessity. Assuming all of its pieces to be in excellent condition, your rather extensive, classic set would have an estimated retail value of $2,800- $3,200 (AUD) in today's market.


Once again, please forgive the delay. I wish the best to you and your great set of Rosenthal.
