Customer Question

Hi. I have 2 sets of antique china. Haviland Gainsborough with flowers on the front and Haviland Limoges made in France. Also a set called the "Tea Party with Lady April and 2 women sitting on a bench having Tea. In addition, I have a French desk with inlaid metal trim. Also, I have a Tea set circa early 1900's. Am interested in knowing their values
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 important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?
Customer: They probably need to be looked at. These were not attic antiques. They were handed down from the generations but as I am looking at downsizing I would possibly like to sell them.

I have photos to email you. What about the china? Also do you have an email address I can send photos to from my cell phone?

One item or a set at a time here really helps allay confusion on this end.
