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 give me more information.
How many people does your set serve?
How many pieces does each person have?
What serving pieces are there? These can add as much as 30% to the value of a set.
If you do not know both the maker and the pattern ID, then I need two photos - one of the pattern and one of the marks on the bottom.
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 "reply to expert" 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.
An explanation of this method can be found here:
