I have 3 items that I'm curious about. 1st is a set of China

Customer Question

I have 3 items that I'm curious about. 1st is a set of China that my aunt-in-law gave me 25 years ago. She purchased set when got her first job at 17 years old in Panama, when she gave the set to me she was already in late 70's to early 80's. When I inquired about the China 15 years ago I was told that the set was worth $1200.00 and 2 pieces were missing. The 2nd item is a 3D picture of a lady with a bonnet and long gloves that buttoned up her arms. And the 3rd item is a blanket chest that I brought 20 years ago for $300.00. I saw an almost identical one on the Antique Road Show. The one on the Antique Road Show's appraiser told the owner that it was worth a good amount of money but it would be worth more if it had a safe box inside. Mine has the safe inside and I have the key. From what I have mentioned do you think any one of these things are of any real value?

Please see our help page for help uploading images.
