Good day, my name is***** am a Certified Antique and Fine Art Appraiser, how may I help you. Thank you for your question. The Hall marks are for Edinburgh, Scotland, the first mark is the maker possibly J. Crichton and Co. They were in business in the later of the 19th Century. So it appears you have a set of Scottish Silver Goblets. If you send a picture of one or all of the goblets I will try to give you a value.

Hello Tim,Thank you so much for your response. The little goblets are rather lovely. Please find a photo attached.Best,

Thank you, ***** ***** appears you made quite a find in the attic. Goblets similar to your lovelies have sold at auction for: $400.00 to $450.00 each. In a retail setting I would expect to see them sell for double that. Enjoy!!
