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.

Please send me a photo of your servers.

I also need one of the marks.

ou 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" found in the toolbar you see on your reply page.

Please, too, send me the sizes of your servers.

I look forward to your reply.

Kind regards,

Doris

Revised request - I found your marks. I do not need a photo of the marks. I do need just one of the servers.

Thank you.
