What is the value of a Wilcox Internaltion Silver Co. New Beverly Manor #1304 tea set that includes platter, sugar and creamer, and two pots? Thank you!
Good Evening,
Your Wilcox International Silver co Manor #1304 is produced of silver plate. Silver plate is a thin layer of electroplated silver over a base metal in your case brass which is an alloy of zinc and copper. Retail value of the tea set would be roughly 200-250 dollars if you were going to sell it in an antique shop. Fair market value for your silver plate set are based on the current demand these values are as follows Tea Pot 20-30, Coffee Pot 20-30 dollars, Sugar bowl 10-15 dollars, Creamer 12-17 dollars , if you have the matching tray that would value at roughly 40-50 dollars.
Silver plate prices in the current market has struggled due to low demand. People are not buying as much silver plate because of the storage and cleaning of the pieces.
Thank you very much for your time,
