Diana I have 34 pieces of Adderley blue chelsea Does

Customer Question

Hi Diana I have 34 pieces of Adderley blue chelsea Does it have value? How do I sell it. It is in perfect condition. All the backs have the same stamp but a couple are different. I also have four plates that almost look the same but have a small embossed beading around the outside. Not stamped in back. Great granny was born in 1900 so these dishes have been around for a while.

Hi and thanks for choosing us and requesting me.

My name is ***** ***** I'd like to see if I can help.
That sounds like you might have a few pieces from both version. One was smooth and the other did have some embossing to parts of the design. You see it more on pieces like plates and some of the serving pieces.
It definitely has value. The marks won't matter as much because the value doesn't change much from one year it was made to the next. The more important question is about what you have. Can you give me a list of exactly what you have and which pieces are embossed or not? that will make the biggest difference in your value.
