Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help.

At retail through a dealer, prices for this pattern are as follows:

Five-piece place setting, $260.00 each

Extra spoons, $30 each

Demitasse spoons, $16 each

Ice cream fork, $48

Ladle, $60

Pie server, $49

Butter knife, $38

Serving spoons, $70 each

This comes out to around $2600. If you are interested in selling the set, typically an individual owner can get between 30% and 40% of the retail selling price, by selling on their own.

Please let me know if I can help further.
