Seranade is 104 pieces, does that sound right?Tudor Rose Is 116. I counted the best I could some are still in the boxes.

Are you still calculating the worth of the china?
Expert:  Judith-on-Antiques replied 1 year ago.
I am trying to decipher the several lists you gave me. I think I have it figured out:The listing you gave me for the Sebring set, assuming the "serving platters" you mentioned meant 2 platters, adds up to 91 pieces. The Tudor Rose set adds up to 114 pieces, according to your list.Please tell me if these numbers are correct.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Tudor Rose is correct. The Sebring set is 108 pieces, I counted 2x.

Found another soup bowl for a total of 12 soup bowls. So sorry about giving you a confusing count the dishes were in different places in the basement. Counted piece by piece so the count I just gave you is correct.

I would like you to give me the best estimate you can now. Do you wish to speak directlly. Or can you give me an answer now?
Expert:  Judith-on-Antiques replied 1 year ago.
Okay, I'm back with you.The Sebring set, if all the pieces are in perfect condition, has a current retail (replacement or insurance) value of approximately $1,150. If you were to sell it, you could expect to get the fair market (private sale or auction) value of approximately 40% of the retail amount or $460, depending on location and actual condition. The Noritake set, if it is in perfect condition, has a current retail (replacement or insurance) value of approximately $1,000. If you were to sell it, you could expect to get the fair market (private sale or auction) value of approximately 40% of the retail amount or $400, depending on location and actual condition.
