I have some china that my Mother left me and some crystal glass

Customer Question

I have some china that my Mother left me and some crystal glass ware that has been in my family for years. I know very little about them and what they are worth. I do have pictures of some of them. But the lighting was not very good so the details are not very clear on the pictures.

Hello,My name isCustomerand I would love to help. I do one item/group per question, but I will do the china and the crystal for you in one question.Please use the Add Files feature to add pictures of the pattern and mark on the back of one piece of the china, assuming they are all the same.Do the same with the crystal. Hold it up to the light and see if there is a mark on the bottom. Crystal is usually etched, so you have to be in good light to see an etched mark if it is there.

what would the mark look like?
Expert:  Rarewares replied 1 year ago.
Most china has something on the bottom called a backstamp that is a logo, words and/or numbers that help identify the maker and age.
