Customer Question

I received a set of Little Hostess Dishes for playtime,
JA: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.
Customer: for a gift and its the dainty pastel pattern. Its in its original box (a little rough) 28 piece set and all the pieces are there with the exception of one bowl, which was broken and glued back together. I think its approx. 60 to 63 years old. I would like to sell it, but not sure what it would be worth? Any help would be great. Elaine
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?
Customer: Not that I can think of.....I think I saw one on line the same as the one I have quite a while ago for either $100 or $150 and the box was sold solo for $19 and one was $25 depending on the condition of the box.

I just got your message, I did not send a phone call request, that came from the site as an upsell offer.

Are your dishes glass or metal?
