Meito China was in business from 1907 to 1970 with most

china in the US being sold from 1930 to 1950 when the brand was most popular here.

Your service for 24 in Meito china has a current value of $800 to $1000 retail.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are Offerup.com (local), Varagesale.com (local) , Wanelo.com, Bonanza.com, Ioffer.com, Etsy.com, Ebay and letgo.com (local).
You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.

Please take a moment to click the five stars in the upper right of your
