Can you send a picture of this and also a picture of the bottom of one piece?

An antique English Staffordshire tea set by Pinder Bourne tea service for 12 can sell for $350 - $400 at auction on today's market. The set can be offered for higher at retail. You can, however, ask any price you please on an item you own, they key factor is finding a buyer at your asking price. Bear in mind that an ‘asking price’ is one that has not been sold yet and a true sale value is based on actual past documented sale records.

As I asked for images in order to give the exact date this was produced and the value of the set. Some Pinder Bourne Porcelain is selling for as much as 22,500.00 on today's market. Can you please send images of your set, to include the mark on the bottom this will ensure that you get the exact date the set was produced as well as the value.

It is very important to know what you have? I can give you the exact value on your set with the correct information. As I stated some of the sets are currently selling for as much as 22,000.00. So it is very important to know what you have. Apple Blossom cups and saucers are selling for $ 60.00-70.00 each. Apple Blossom Luncheon plate is selling for $79.00 and up. This is why it is imperative to know what you have. Some sets are also listed for 15,000.00.


So with the description of yours and the marks on the bottom, I can pinpoint the exact value.
