I have 3 pieces of antique Noritake china. I do believe that

Customer Question

I have 3 pieces of antique Noritake china. I do believe that it was purchased in Alberta and then my grandparents returned to Ontario. The pieces consist of a small candy dish on a stem with a matching plate. The 3 piece is a fairly large bowl with the handles cut right into the china. I think that this bowl is mean't to be a fruit bowl. They are all in excellent condition. T he colour is cream background with flowers done in shades of orange with a light teal and all is itched with I believe is 18k gold, All 3 dishes also have a black band with golf edging on the outer ring of the black. I live really close to Toronto and I have tried and tried to find someone that is at all familiar with this work, to know avail. Have you any suggestions of how I might be able to obtain additional information on these 3 pieces? Thank you for your help and I can be reached by email at***@******.*** or phone(###) ###-####
JA: 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. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?
Customer: I kinow my grandmother had them pre World War II and they are in mint condition. I do remember them in her home in the late 40 - 50

I have 5 photos of the china; however I can only upload two at a time. Is there a way to send all five through conventional email?If you can provide a direct email address, that would be very helpful.
