My follow-up to Glenda was regarding Noritake China,

Customer Question

my follow-up to Glenda was regarding Noritake China, Silvester DINNER SET. This 96pcs is in original boxes sent from Japan and still in unwrapped green paper., therefore never used. Her estimate of $1100 was appreciated. My question now concerns the ORIGINAL CONDITION and its value. What difference, if any should it make?

The value that I gave you was for this set in the original wrappings, in their original boxes, made in Japan. The value was for a never used set of china. If it had been used and not in the original boxes, it would have been lower in value.
