Nov 6, 2015, question Wedgwood appraiser: I have a Wedgwood

Customer Question

Nov 6, 2015,
question for a Wedgwood appraiser: I have a Wedgwood Bone China service for 12, that I purchased new on 2/13/1988 with additional pieces for just under $1,400.00. It was used for one dinner party for 8, then all pieces were stored. Many pieces have never been used.
I am interested in selling this set. What do you think is the value? and could I sell it back to Wedgwood? It is a beautiful set.

Hi Ida,

My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help with your Wedgwood service.

Could you very kindly attach a photo of the pattern.

Once you have the photos in your computer, it's a simple matter to attach them. Just click on the paperclip icon, located above the text box where you are typing to me. If there's no paperclip, click on the "Add files" tab.

If you get stuck go here for help.

Also, are there any serving pieces such as platters, tureens etc as these are always the most expensive parts of a service?

Could you add the numbers and edit the following list:

12 Dinner plates

12 Luncheon/salad plates

12 Soup plates (rimmed?)

12 Cups & saucers

12 Bread & butter plates

Oval platters (sizes)

Vegetable server (and cover?)

Creamer & sugar

Gravy boat & underplate


Many thanks and wait to hear,
