Looking on my grandmother's china.

Customer Question

***** *****. Looking for history on my grandmother's china. On the back in descending order: Mayfair. Thomas Ivory. Thomas Bavaria. Germany (gold print). 24 (gold print)
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I'm interested in the history and where it might have come from. She had 5 brothers who all served in WW I. She was born and died in Perry County, Tennessee. Interested in service pieces....for example, is there a teapot to this pattern?
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Antique Experts generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

Miss Judith, I'm so sorry but I'm about to leave for Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville with a family emergency. I don't know when I will be able to get back with you. Please credit my account & I will re-contact you at a later date. Thank you!
