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.

Please tell me the pattern if you know it.

If not, I need a photo of your set as well as the marks on the backs.

You may need to use the macro function (flower icon) of your camera to get a good clear photo of the marks.

If you cannot get a good photo, then sketch the marks and take a photo of the sketch.

To send photos you may use the "attach file" or "add file" in the blue box link on your reply page or the "paper clip" found in the toolbar you see on your reply page.
Please do not send in ZIP format. The jpg or jpeg format works best.

I also need the following information.

How many people does your set serves?

How many pieces does each person have?

What serving pieces are in the set? These can add as much as 30% to the value of a set.

I realize I am asking a lot about your set. But I need this information to give your the accurate values you deserve.

Kind regards,

Doris

I did some research, it says since it's sterling silver it was probably made in the 1900s, cause wallace started using sterling around that time
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I think it's 12 of each
Expert:  Doris replied 1 year ago.

There is no hurry.

Please send photos and tell me

You have a set that serves 12 people.

How many pieces does each person have?

What serving pieces are there in the set?

Kind regards,

Doris
