Customer Question

Hi Doris,
I'm Kim & I have a complete tea set with its own tray- it's White bone china from Staffordshire. It has almost a wood bark design in the china and trimmed with gold & a gold acorn on top of tea pot, sugar bowl & creamer. The tray looks like a tree stump again with the gold trim. How would I get a quote for what is worth is!?
Thank you,

Hello and welcome! My name is Doris.
I have been an antiques collector, dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.
I will be pleased to help you.

Thank you for requesting me.

I need a little more information before I can give you values.

First I need two photos - one of a plate and one of the marks on the bottom.

You may need to use the macro function (flower icon) of your camera to get a good clear photo of the marks.

If you cannot get a good photo, then sketch the marks and take a photo of the sketch.

To send photos you may use the "attach" or "add" link or "paper clip" you see on your reply page.

Second, I need to know what type pieces are in your set and how many of each type.
