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 tell me how many people your set serves.

I also need to know the number of pieces each person has.

Finally, let me know what serving pieces you have. These can add 50% to the value of a set.

Kind regards,

Doris
