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 know that I cannot accept any requests for "live conversations" such as phone calls.
I give my best answers in writing when I have time to think about them.
Sometimes a "Chat box" will pop-up asking if you would like a live conversation. Please know it is not from me.
If another professional enters our exchanges, feel free to tell them that you are working with me if you wish.
The English firm of Deykin & Sons was established in 1854 in Birmingham, UK.
They made electroplated silver and used the trade name PRUSSIAN SILVER.
The firm was succeeded by Deykin & Harrison in 1895.
Your plated silver tablespoons date mid to late 19thC and have an estimated retail value of $35-50 each.
Online auctions like eBay generally bring wholesale selling prices.
If you would like to sell close to retail , some ideas are:
The internet has your largest audience of buyers. Place small ads on these sites or set up your own small store on these sites.
Etsy.com - small fees - 20 cents to list plus 3.5% final price.
Amazon Marketplace: http://services.amazon.com/content/sell-on-amazon.htm/ref=footer_soa?ld=AZFSSOA
A private seller to a dealer or at auction can expect 30-60% of retail value.
I hope I have helped you.
