Customer Question

After the passing of my grandmother, we found a large set of China, that I remember her saying the factory in Philadelphia burned down after this pattern was made. I am wondering if you have any information on this China.

Hello

What are you wanting to know about this china?

Wright, Tyndale & Van Roden is the pattern the China is made by Minton. This was produced in 1890.

Would there be a value to this if I have 12 person place settings plus all the side pieces, and would this be the only set of this pattern as my grandmother had suggested?

Hello

There is no way to know for sure that the exact pattern you have was made before yours. There is no way to know how many sets of this pattern were made because there are not records that are available with that information. So they could have made a thousand sets of this.

.

If you can tell me what side pieces you have and what is in each place setting, I can value this.

Just let me know when you know how many pieces. Then I can value this.
