Customer Question

We lost all my moms China in a fire, we are trying to find it. She bought it in 1959 it was Ivory with a gold trim and had a single pink rosebud in the middle. Would you have any idea of what it might be?
JA: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?
Customer: It might of had a crackled look.

No that is not it. It was a small rosebud, in the middle. Only a bud, not opened up at all. Any other ideas?

Ok, let me do some more research, I will see if I can find it.

Do you know who made it?

No, that had been our issue with finding the pattern. She lived in Montana if that helps at all and it was the China she picked out when the got married in 1959.
Expert:  Glenda B. replied 7 months ago.

Does she remember what store?

She died 26 yrs ago and the fire was 2 years after she died. My Dad doesn't remember anything.

No, it had gold trim on the edges and just the bud of a rose in the middle and they were ivory.
Expert:  Glenda B. replied 7 months ago.

Hello

I do not believe they will be found. I suggest you contact customer service and request a refund since I have not found them for you. I am completely out of places to look. The set may never have been recorded anywhere to be found

You can do so by calling them 1(###) ###-####/p>
