I have my grandmother's porcelain fruit stand that was given

Customer Question

I have my grandmother's porcelain fruit stand that was given to her for her wedding in 1923. I am looking to get a valuation. The porcelain fruit stand stands about 2.5 feet in height with multiple figurines and flowers also made out of porcelain. I can send you a picture if you would like.
Any idea what it would appraise at?

This is a porcelain centerpiece made in Dresden, Germany by Carl Thieme of Potschappel, Germany between the years of 1913 to 1920 when his studio was most prolific and making the monumental pieces. The value of this piece is $1750 retail and $5250 for an insurance/replacement value.
