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.

A "complete" set can be many different sizes to serve 8, 12 or even 24.

I need to know how many your Blue set serves;ie, how many guests will it serve.

Then I need to know how many pieces each guest has.

Finally, I need to know a list of serving pieces. Serving pieces can add 30-40% to the value of a set.

Then I need to know the exact same information for your Crimson set.

I look forward to your reply.

Kind regards,
