I am interested to find out how much my China is worth, or

Customer Question

I am interested to find out how much my China is worth, or if it is even considered antique. It was made anywhere from 1960-1979. It's noritake whitehall china.
JA: It's only $5 . Don't you just love the idea of finding something valuable in your attic? I do, but I think all I have up there is junk my brothers abandoned before they left home. Always a good idea to check things with the antiques appraiser, though. Tell us what else you do know and the antiques appraiser will be able to better assist you.
Customer: It's Noritake 6115 Whitehall China. I have dinner plates, salad plates, appetizer plates, tea cups and tea cup plates, fruit bowls, etc...
JA: Is there anything else the antiques appraiser should be aware of?
Customer: It's all in great condition. Some of it comes in the original packaging.

My name isCustomerand I would love to help.

Please let me know how many pieces comprise your set. Most people

have a service for 8, 10 or 12 plus a few serving pieces.

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I have a gravy bowl no handles, a bowl that looks like it can pour gravy out, 2 sugar bowls and lids to go with, 6 dinner plates, 17 salad plates, 17 bread plates, 19 tea cup saucers, 12 tea cups, 6 small bowls, and 6 other type of plate/bowl (looks to be maybe a dessert style plate.

So that would be a service for 6 plus a few extras.

The Noritake Whitehall pattern was first created in 1960 and was discontinued in 1979, but

still has an elegant design that remains classic and contemporary.

The set as a whole has a value of $800 to $1000. Since it is an odd number of each shape, I would sell

a service for six separate at $600.00 and then sell the other pieces as single lots (cup and saucer as one lot, gravy boat as one lot, sauce boat as one lot, etc) for $10 to $35 each.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are,,, Ebay and
You can also go to or and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.

To finish, I will need you to click the five stars at the top right of your screen and hit the green submit button, thanks!
