I have a Hutschenreuther tea set: 4 cups and saucers,

Customer Question

I have a Hutschenreuther tea set: 4 cups and saucers, creamer, covered sugar bowl, pot with cover. Very dainty. Pot is only about 6 inches tall. It has an Oriental design with orange the basic color, accents in black and green, gold details and gilding. I have found nothing with which I can compare it. Purchased at an antique store by my mother in the early 1930's. Can you help??

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 send two photos - one or more of the pattern and one clear, close-up 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:

Kind regards,

Or if the quick photo sending method does not work for you, then there is a slow email method that can take 24 hours.

This is the official explanation of how to send photos via email:

Please follow the directions exactly or they will not get to me.

Send the picture to ***@******.***

In the subject line put " Pictures for˜Doris in Antiques or Appraisals."
In the body of the message put, your user name and name.
Make sure to send these from the same address that you registered with

Just Answer, so they can verify who you are.

This method takes longer because the photos are sent to the Just Answer

techs who must forward them to me. It sometimes takes as long as 24 hours.
They will forward them to me and as soon as I get them I will contact you.

Kind regards,

Thank you for getting back to me so quickly. Glitch on my end! My husband has our only cell phone that takes pictures. He will be out of town for a week. I have taken two good pictures with my Canon...but don't know how to get them on the computer. I will need to get help from my daughter, which may take a day or two.
Expert:  Doris replied 1 year ago.

You should be able to email them from your cell phone. Just be sure to follow the directions for emailing photos exactly.

There is no hurry.

Kind regards,

Hi, Doris.
I'd love to send the pictures from my cell phone. I am in Kansas. The phone is in California. I'm feeling a bit obsolete right now.
Expert:  Doris replied 1 year ago.


Not to worry.

Just send them when you have help.

No hurry.

Kind regards,
