Where can we take it to get it appraised
Expert:  Doris replied 1 year ago.

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.

To give the most accurate appraisal, I am going to need more information.

Please send me a photo of both patterns and the marks on the bottoms of both. Be sure to tell me which pattern goes with which marks.

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 file" or "add file" link on your reply page or the "paper clip" found in the toolbar you see on your reply page.

"Complete" sets come in many different sizes.

Both sets serve 8 people each.

Tell me how many pieces of each set does each person have.

Then I need to know the serving pieces for each set. These can add 50% to the value of a set.

I look forward to your replies.

Kind regards,
