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.

You have asked about two separate items in one question. We usually require only one item per question.

I will take both questions here but please remember our policy next time.

Please tell me how many pieces each of the 8 people has of the Royal Doulton.

What serving pieces of the Royal Doulton do you have?

Please remember that cash value usually means you will sell to a dealer. These values are usually about 30-60% of retail. You will only come close to retail if you sell to a private party.

In Canadian dollars -

Royal Doulton - retail $4049, cash $1350-2025

Royal Crown Derby - retail $1811, cash $603-905.

At auction as well, you can expect a low cash value.

A private seller to a dealer or at auction can expect 30-60% of retail value.

I hope I have helped you.
